There would also be an increase in revenue for the UK Flag which would be positive to UK PLC.</p><p> </p><p>For bareboat charter-out, there would be an impact in that the ship is suspended from the UK Flag and therefore revenue is impacted but only for the time that the vessel is chartered out. When the vessel returns to the UK Flag, revenue would increase as the vessel does not leave the UK Flag which has previously been the case.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>Ahead of a potential exit on 29 March, DfT worked with a number of Departments to develop planning assumptions for a potential no deal exit. Since April, Departments have reviewed the planning assumptions and developed new assumptions based on the most recent information from Member States and in light of the extension to 31 October 2019. These assumptions are focused on a reasonable worst case scenario, rather than what we expect to happen, and have already been shared with key partners to support revision of contingency plans, where appropriate, for a potential no deal scenario on 31 October. These planning assumptions remain under review throughout the planning process. The Government does not publish sensitive risk assessments of this nature.</p> more like this

A further consultation focussing on the policy and legislation was carried out between 29 May and 10 July 2019. No specific discussion took place between the Department and regional tourism bodies, but the consultation was open to comments from them. The IA was amended to take account of any relevant comments received. A drop-in session was held for Honourable Members to raise any concerns in May 2019.</p>
