IFG - Statement in response to Parliament's meaningful vote
Bronwen Maddox, Director of the Institute for Government, said: “Last night’s historic vote – and the Government’s subsequent historic defeat – mean a no deal Brexit remains a real possibility.
“Our work shows that the Government is woefully underprepared for such an outcome. Key deadlines have already passed and businesses have not been given the direction which they need to prepare.
“Parliament’s inability to coalesce around a preferred option means that the Government’s legislative preparations for Brexit – with or without a deal – are well off track. If the Prime Minister wins the confidence of the House, her offer to build consensus must be a genuine one which is taken seriously by opposition parties.”
