UK’s Johnson tells civil servants their top priority is preparing for no deal Brexit -Sky

LONDON, Aug 9 (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has written to all government civil servants to tell them that preparing for a no-deal exit from the European Union is his and their top priority, Sky News reported on Friday.

“I would very much prefer to leave with a deal … but I recognise this may not happen,” the letter said, according to Sky’s political correspondent Kate McCann.

“That is why preparing urgently and rapidly for the possibility of an exit without a deal will be my top priority, and it will be the top priority for the Civil Service too.” (Reporting by Michael Holden; editing by Stephen Addison)
