Island prepared for 'No Deal' Brexit

The Chief Minister says the Isle of Man is prepared for a ‘No Deal’ Brexit.

It follows the ongoing debate surrounding the outcome of the negotiations in the UK.

Howard Quayle says: “The interests of the Isle of Man have been strongly represented in discussions with the UK Government on a number of issues and in respect of both a Deal and No Deal outcome, and I am confident that we are as fully prepared as we can be at this stage.

“This does not mean that we are being complacent and recognise this is an unfolding and complex issue, and matters continue to develop.”

The Isle of Man Government has been working with the UK Government to prepare for a potential scenario where the UK leaves the EU without a negotiated settlement in place.

Government is also issuing information to businesses with letters sent directly to traders, freight, transport and cargo companies.

It says its focus is to consider the security and continuity of supply of fuel, medicines and food to the Isle of Man.
