Will ‘no deal’ hurt Northern Ireland?

Michael Gove – the Cabinet minister in charge of no-deal Brexit planning – has insisted the Government will spend “whatever it takes” to get the country prepared.

Boris Johnson has written to civil servants saying his top priority was preparing for a possible No Deal situation – although he would much prefer leaving with a re-negotiated deal.
