Bank of England says Brexit uncertainties 'more entrenched'

"The backstop issue I think has moved on quite a lot because there is now a much greater recognition even by the Irish government itself, who said very clearly if there was no deal there was no need still for a border".

Conservative Party chairman James Cleverly says the ruling party that made Johnson its leader and prime minister last month won't "initiate a general election".

Reacting to the leak, Fianna Fáil's agriculture spokesperson, Charlie McConalogue, said: "The document confirms what we already know regarding what the impact of a hard Brexit would be on the agricultural sector between the North and South".

He was tasked to pass on the prime minister's message that the United Kingdom will "work energetically" for a Brexit deal, but any agreement must see the controversial Irish border backstop arrangement "abolished", a United Kingdom spokesperson said.

The document also warned that "low-income groups may be disproportionately affected by price rises" in food, fuel, utilities and services, while food banks may struggle to get enough funding to support those affected.

"Philip Hammond, who resigned as Chancellor just moments before Boris Johnson's appointment as Prime Minister, has been recruiting MPs to help block the new leaders" no deal plans. "We have been clear we want to get a deal, but it has to be a different deal, a good deal, one that abolishes this undemocratic backstop, and if we can not remove that backstop then we have to leave with no deal and we will be ready to do that".

"But as I have told our European friends, we are going to prepare very actively for that eventuality in high confidence that this is an fantastic country and we will get through it if we need to".

The finance ministry said the new money will "turbo-charge" no-deal preparations. Of those, 1.1 billion pounds will be spent on improving border and customs infrastructure and ensure access to critical medical products.

But that was in the context of a no-deal Brexit.

A further £1bn will be made available for all departments and devolved administrations to "enhance operational preparedness", and will involve departments bidding to the Treasury if they require extra funding. However, it warned that a no-deal exit from the European Union would probably lead to slower growth, higher prices, and a weaker pound. He is standing for re-election against Jane Dodds, a "Remain alliance" candidate backed by the Liberal Democrats, Greens, and Plaid Cymru, Labour candidate Tom Davies the Brexit Party's Des Parkinson, UKIP's Liz Phillips, and Lady Lily The Pink of the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.

Javid's predecessor Philip Hammond, who opposed leaving the European Union without a divorce deal, was accused by Brexit supporters of failing to spend enough money to get Britain ready for a no-deal Brexit, undermining its negotiating position with Brussels.
