star this property answer text <p>The earliest that the UK can leave without a deal is 31 October 2019. Our priority remains delivering the deal to ensure a smooth and orderly exit before this date. While we do not want to leave with no deal and Parliament has also voted against this outcome three times, it remains the legal default at the end of the extension period in the event a Withdrawal Agreement cannot be agreed. As a responsible government we’ve been preparing to minimise any disruption in the event of no deal for over two years and will continue to prepare for all Brexit scenarios.</p><p> </p> more like this
