LONDON (Reuters) - Brexit minister Stephen Barclay said on Monday he would remain in his position if Britain leaves the European Union on March 29 without a deal, because he would need to help oversee the process.

Asked on BBC television if he would remain in government if Britain left the bloc without a deal he replied: “Yes, I would because I need to manage the risk, we as the government would need to manage those risks.”

“But no one wants a no deal scenario because it would be disruptive.”
