Greater Manchester is working together to make preparations for Brexit. Agencies from across the city-region are meeting regularly to ensure that we are as prepared as we can be for any Brexit outcome.
It is expected that parliament will debate and vote on the withdrawal agreement on Friday December 20, with a view to the UK ending its EU membership on January 31, 2020 and the transition period (the time when a trade agreement can be negotiated with the EU) running until December 31, 2020. Only if a trade agreement is not agreed with the EU, would the UK be at risk of leaving on December 31, 2020 with no deal.
Greater Manchester will continue to monitor the situation and take the appropriate action once the arrangements and impact are clearer. The following pages include important local updates, but are primarily aimed at helping people find their way to all the latest national information which may affect them. We will be regularly updating these pages, and if there is any further information you think would be useful, please contact us on email@example.com.
