Philip Hammond refuses to fund preparations for a no-deal Brexit

  Philip Hammond refuses to fund preparations for a no-deal Brexit Philip Hammond has said that it would be irresponsible for the UK government to start spending money on planning for a "no-deal" Brexit and that it is the government's "duty" to reach a deal with the European Union. In an article for the Times newspaper, the Chancellor said that he will not be announcing measures to get ready for no-deal in the budget next month, in a move that will likely anger those in favour of a hard Brexit in the cabinet.

Flights between the EU and Britain could stop in 2019, the Chancellor suggested (file photo). But Mr Hammond - known as an arch-Remainer - added that no one “seriously believes” such an outcome is likely to unfold.

LONDON — Flights between the UK and the European Union could "theoretically" stop on the day Britain officially drops out of the bloc, Chancellor Philip Hammond told MPs on Wednesday.

Speaking to the Treasury Select Committee, Hammond discussed the Treasury's contingency planning for the chance that Britain ends up falling out of the EU without securing a deal on trade. 

He said that while flights stopping would represent the "most extreme scenario," it is not beyond the realms of possibility.

"Obviously one can plan for the most extreme scenario. Let me give you an example. It is theoretically conceivable that in a no deal scenario there will be no air traffic moving between the UK and the European Union on March 29th 2019," Hammond told the TSC's chair Nicky Morgan.

  Jeremy Corbyn: Government is failing Britain in Brexit talks Mr Corbyn will also tell a London conference that Labour is building a “new consensus for the economy” to replace a “broken” system that currently exploits the many for the profits of a few. Responding to Chancellor Philip Hammond’s warning at this month’s Conservative conference that Labour poses “an existential challenge to our economic model”, Mr Corbyn will say: “He’s absolutely right. We do.

"I don't think anybody seriously believes that is where we will get to," he said.

"It's very clear that mutual self interest means even if talks break down, even if there is no deal, there will be a very strong compulsion on both sides to reach agreement on an air traffic services arrangement."

Philip Hammond ‘preparing revolutionary budget’

  Philip Hammond ‘preparing revolutionary budget’ The DUP, meanwhile, is said to be “very concerned” about Mr Hammond’s behaviour. A party source told The Sunday Telegraph: “It is evident to us that he is winding people up and causing unnecessary division within the Conservative Party at a crucial time in the Brexit negotiations, and his behaviour is very unsettling.“One has to wonder what his motivation is. He appears to be at least highly sceptical about Brexit and one could conclude from his current position and his behaviour that he is trying to frustrate the negotiating process and to undermine the Prime Minister.

"There is a range of outcomes, and what we will need to do at a point in time is determine what is a realistic worst case scenario that we need to plan for, and invest for."

Hammond is not the first person or institution to warn on the possibility of air traffic between Britain and the EU ceasing, with Michael O'Leary, Ryanair's CEO saying in March that there is a "distinct possibility of no flights between Europe and the UK for a period from March 2019 in the absence of a bilateral deal."

"It is utter madness for anyone to think that a Brexit ‘no deal’ would be anything but a total disaster for our world leading UK aviation sector and beyond," the British Airline Pilots Association said in a statement on Wednesday.

During the same hearing, Hammond said explicitly that the UK's economic prospects are being "dampened" by Brexit uncertainty.

"While the UK economy is fundamentally strong and in good shape, we are being affected by uncertainty over the negotiation process that we are engaged in at the moment," he told MPs.

"There's plenty of anecdotal evidence that business and consumers are waiting to see what the outcome is or at least what the direction of travel is before firming up investment decisions and consumption decisions."
