"With 92 days until the UK leaves the European Union it's vital that we intensify our planning to ensure we are ready," Chancellor Sajid Javid, said.
Additional finance is provided for increase in the number of border service officers, modernization of transport infrastructure in ports, for “stockpiling medicines to ensure continued supplies and a national programme to help businesses”.
According to the Chancellor, these allocations will provide readiness to Brexit on October 31, with or without deal.
It should be noted that Great Britain spent 4,2 billion GBP for Brexit in 2016.
Earlier, it was reported that on April 10, 27 EU countries and the United Kingdom agreed on a flexible reprieve until October 31.
However, the British assumed that Brexit would be delayed for a shorter time. In particular, on 9 April, the British Parliament voted in favor of Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan to postpone Brexit until 30 June.
Ukraine created a delegation for negotiations with the UK about cooperation after Brexit. The delegation was headed by Ukraine's State Secretary of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade. It consisted of 21 people, among them deputy ministers who deal with European integration issues.
