Islanders are still being encouraged to prepare for Brexit on 31 October, by Guernsey States.

It comes after MPs in the UK voted to back an amendment to withhold approval of the deal agreed between Boris Johnson and Brussels.

In a statement the Policy and Resources Committee said the further delay is disappointing as it will lead to further uncertainty.

They went onto say that a disorderly exit for Britain is not in the best interests of the Bailiwick and they will continue to work with the UK government over the coming days.

Brexit on 31st October remains the UK Government’s policy and therefore regrettably there is still the possibility of this happening without the ratification of an approved deal. The States of Guernsey have been preparing for that possibility for more than three years.

Through close working with the UK government, regional officials in key areas such as Portsmouth, and local industry, we are as ready as we can be, whatever the outcome of ongoing Westminster’s Brexit deliberations.
