Jeremy Corbyn and John Bercow vow to prevent ‘damaging’ no-deal by Metro Reporter Published

He said on Sunday: "It's certainly the case there will be some bumps in the road, some element of disruption in the event of no-deal".

Since resigning from the government immediately before Theresa May's resignation - to deny her successor Boris Johnson the satisfaction of firing him, by most accounts - Hammond has made it clear that he will be supporting the ongoing efforts of European Union loyalists in the House of Commons to block Brexit from the backbenches, possibly by trying to oust Johnson as Prime Minister.

A confidential government dossier warning of the impact of a no-deal Brexit was described Sunday as a worst-case scenario document.

Earlier, asked about the Yellowhammer documents, energy minister Kwasi Kwarteng told Sky News there was "a lot of scaremongering around" and that Britain would be fully prepared for an October 31 no-deal exit.

"Our country is on the brink of an economic crisis as we career towards a no-deal Brexit which will have an immediate effect on food and medical supplies, damage our economy, jobs, the public finances, public services, universities and long-term economic security".

It comes as Boris Johnson will tell French and German leaders that there must be a new Brexit deal when he meets them next week.

Sinn Féin has accused the Government of being "reckless" on Brexit.

But a former head of the civil service, Lord Kerslake - who described the document as "credible" - said the dossier "lays bare the scale of the risks we are facing with a no-deal Brexit in nearly every area".

According to Sky News, sources inside Downing Street believe that the Yellowhammer report was "deliberately" leaked by a former minister, stressing that the document's worrying conclusions were "from when ministers were blocking what needed to be done to get ready to leave and the funds were not available".

The announcement of the Act's repeal, posted on the UK Government's website, marks a historic step in returning law-making powers from Brussels to the UK.

In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel said her country is ready for Brexit, even without a deal to smooth the transition.

In his first trip overseas as leader, Johnson is due to meet his European counterparts ahead of a G7 summit on August 24-26 in Biarritz, France.

More than 100 MPs have urged the prime minister to immediately recall parliament from its over five-week summer recess and let it sit permanently until Brexit happens.
