LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will experience “bumps in the road” if it leaves the European Union without a deal, but is more prepared for that outcome than it previously was, Michael Gove, the minister in charge of coordinating ‘no-deal’ Brexit planning, said on Sunday.

“It is the case, as everyone knows, that if we do have a ‘no-deal’ exit there will inevitably be some disruption, some bumps in the road. That’s why we want a deal,” Gove told reporters.

“But it is also the case that the UK government is far more prepared now than it was in the past.”
