No-deal Brexit risk still remains, UK Brexit minister Barclay says

LONDON (Reuters) - There is still a risk that Britain leaves the European Union without a deal at the end of October, Brexit minister Steve Barclay said on Monday.

“The risk of a no deal remains,” Barclay told a parliamentary committee. “The EU 27 may not agree an extension and the house (parliament) has not to date agreed a deal, and so that risk remains pertinent and it is important we prepare for it.”
