From today's Hansard coverage of Prime Minister's Questions. Mr Steve Baker (Wycombe) (Con) It is in the national interest that we should have, and have implemented, contingency plans for the unwanted eventuality of exiting the European Union with nothing agreed. Now there is collective agreement to accelerate the delivery of our plans, will my right hon. Friend please ...

I refer the honorable member to my posting above dated 18th July timed at 13.14. I am not arguing about the result of the referendum. I am putting forward information concerning contingency plans should we leave the EU without a deal.  I repeat, it is Brexiteers, not Remainers, who are arguing for these contingency plans because they wish this country to be in a position to walk away from the ...

"if the medicine that some of us rely on now runs out - tough sh1t." Look the mother of a desperately sick child in the eye and say that​! oh and btw - this contingency planning (stockpiling) is being pushed by hardline Brexiteers not Remainers.  I'll give you an example of this in a couple of hours time when the Hansard coverage of today's Prime Minister's Questions is online.

The quarterly return, July, August, September, from the Ministry of Agriculture showed that the amount spent each week on potatoes doubled from 7.9p to 16.15p, despite a 14 per cent. drop in sales. The overall food increase, including beef and milk along with potatoes, meant that the food bill for a family of four went up by £2.88 a week in that quarter. BUT WE SURVIVED!!!!!!!

Stockpiling,and tarriffs cost money and if the cost go too high, then people will stop buying that particular product and start on something else. I am sure some will remember the steep price that potatoes once went too in 1976, well it did not last long as people switched and bought rice and new crops started to flood in. It is a balancing act as to how things will pan out and market forces and ...

"I will imagine that measures are already being addressed by the suppliers to keep it going, and that applies to most things we import." Exactly!! Quite!! They are stockpiling in the eventuality of there being a no deal, hard Brexit. Which will mean import tariffs and customs checks leading to increase in costs and increase in delay of supplies. If they just stood back and ...

Business is business. Everybody appears to be making assumptions as to what might happen when we leave. What could we do if those that assume something are correct when it happens? Prove by way of facts before any conclusions are made is my motto. The supply chain to the NHS is complicated, are the suppliers going to bite their nose to spite their face. I will imagine that measures are already ...
