Statement by the Minister for External Relations on Operation Yellowhammer

11 September 2019

​The Minister for External Relations, Senator Ian Gorst, has made the following Statement:
 
“This evening the UK Government published details of their ‘Operation Yellowhammer’ planning assumptions, which set out the risks from a worst-case scenario Brexit.
 
“The Government of Jersey has repeatedly highlighted the possibility that in the event of a No Deal Brexit there may be negative impacts on Jersey, including delays to the Island’s supply chains, or a lack of choice of products. We are not complacent about these risks.
 
“I have asked officials to prepare for publication a summary of the planning assumptions and mitigations that the Government of Jersey has pursued, in order to prepare for a No Deal Brexit.
 
“These contingency plans have been produced as part of the ongoing engagement that Ministers and officials have had with the UK government, and complement the amendments to the Emergency Planning Law that were passed unanimously by the States Assembly yesterday. I want to emphasise that, as with the Emergency Planning Law amendments, these plans are intended to be implemented in the event of a worst case scenario only.
 
“I am confident that our planning is robust, and we have substantial contingency preparations and flexibility to react to any potential disruption caused by a No Deal Brexit.”
