Remnants today threatened to drive Boris Johnson out of parliament after he finally released the No Deal risk assessment – but refused to transfer private messages from No10 assistants.
The government bowed to the will of the Commons by issuing editorial versions of Operation Yellowhammer documents related to no-deal Brexit planning, in response to MPs who voted for it.
But the prime minister refused to comply with a Commons requirement to publish personal messages between special advisers – known in Westminster as Spads – about his controversial five-week prorogation to Parliament.
A Scottish court ruled yesterday that Johnson had acted illegally by suspending the Houses, suggesting that he might have misled the Queen because of his & # 39; inappropriate & # 39; motive.
A former adviser indicated that he would prefer to put my phone in a blender & # 39; then transfer it to MPs.
However, former cabinet minister Tory and rebel leader Dominic Grieve condemned the refusal to release the material and warned that Mr. Johnson could be held in contempt for parliament.
& # 39; It could result in expelling the Prime Minister from the Commons, but it is up to the House to decide, & # 39; he told the times.
The newly released government file of & # 39; worst case planning assumptions & # 39; says that a Brexit no deal would lead to delays in medicine, illegal fishing boats, public disorder, delays at the border and rising food prices for those with the lowest incomes.
When most of the documents were leaked earlier this year, they were led by a & # 39; base scenario & # 39; and officials were confronted with allegations of & # 39; scaremongering & # 39 ;.
No food shortages are predicted, but a reduction in & # 39; availability and choice of products & # 39; is predicted if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
Nevertheless, the document reveals that 20 & # 39; most important planning assumptions & # 39; contains – some of which have been partially amended – some very real concerns about a no-deal exit, including increases in electricity prices, delays in importing medicines, protests in the UK and disruption of financial services.
Secretary of Defense Ben Wallace tried to downplay the bad scenario and said the government & # 39; every day & # 39; intended to mitigate the possible effects.
& # 39; That is why we are doing things about it & # 39 ;, he said to the Today program of BBC Radio 4. & # 39; That is why the Chancellor opened his checkbook, so we spend the money doing it of many things to soften those assumptions.
& # 39; Every day we plan everything, whether we need to find alternative suppliers, whether we have to go to the private sector to chart things, or we have to plan to use our army or our police in certain scenarios. & # 39;
In a letter to Dominic Grieve, Michael Gove said that the request for communications from key assistants – such as Dominic Cummings – to the prorogue parliament & # 39; unprecedented, inappropriate and disproportionate & # 39; used to be.
Gove added that & # 39; naming people without regard to their rights or the consequences goes beyond any reasonable parliamentary right & # 39 ;.

Edited versions of the documents linked to no-deal Brexit planning are now published by No10
The government was forced to release edited versions of the no-deal Brexit planning documents now published by No10 in response to MPs who voted for it
The recently released government file of & # 39; worst case planning assumptions & # 39; says a Brexit no-deal would lead to delays in medicine, food shortages, illegal fishing boats, public disorder, border delays and rising food prices for people on the lowest incomes
The newly released government file contains 20 & # 39; most important planning assumptions & # 39; and there is one that has been partially changed
Yellowhammer: what HIS officials are & # 39; reasonable worst-case & # 39; predictions for a No Deal Brexit?
freight: At Dover, vehicles are likely to be delayed by two and a half days, causing kilometers of traffic jams. On the first day that there is no deal, 85% of the trucks may not be ready for French customs, causing the & # 39; flow & # 39; falls to 60%. Fuel supply in the South Eats can be affected.
Medicines: Three quarters of British medicines enter the country via Kent ports and some have a very short shelf life and cannot be stored. Up to 40 percent of the stock can be disrupted on the first day.
Disease: Drug shortages for animals can limit the ability to prevent and control diseases, which can lead to outbreaks of diseases that spread from animals to humans, including swine flu, salmonella and possibly even Ebola and rabies.
Poverty: A decrease in supply will lead to an increase in the price of food and fuel, which will have disproportionate consequences for those on the lowest incomes.
fish: Nearly 300 European fishing vessels were able to enter British waters illegally on the first day and collisions between British fishermen and their foreign counterparts are expected. Smuggling and illegal migration can increase.
Oil: This paragraph has been incorporated into the official report, but recently a copy of Yellowhammer leaked to the Times, which reported its content. It said that EU tariffs will not make gasoline exports competitive. The British government's policy to set import tariffs for gasoline at 0 percent leads to the closure of two British refineries and the loss of 2,000 jobs. Strike due to job losses is expected to lead to two weeks of fuel shortage in the regions supplied by those refineries.
Social Security: An increase in inflation after a no-deal Brexit would result in many providers being unable to pay higher personnel and delivery costs. Smaller providers are expected to fail within three months, larger suppliers within six months.
Gibraltar: Customs controls with Spain cause disruptions of goods, food, medicine and waste shipments for four hours or more & for at least a few months & # 39;
The newly released government file contains 20 & # 39; most important planning assumptions & # 39; and there is one that has been partially changed.
Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer said: “These documents confirm the serious risks of a no-deal Brexit, which Labor has tried so hard to block.
& # 39; It is completely irresponsible that the government has tried to ignore these grim warnings and prevent the public from seeing the evidence.
& Boris Johnson must now admit that he has been unfair with the British people about the consequence of a no-deal Brexit.
& # 39; It is now more important than ever that Parliament is reminded and has the opportunity to examine these documents and take all necessary steps not to stop a deal. & # 39;
And former Education Minister Sam Gyimah – one of the 21 Tory rebels who had withdrawn the whip – tweeted: & The leaked document was not outdated. This is not a project fear.
& # 39; It is a sober assessment of what could happen. No-deal is not & # 39; vanishingly cheap & # 39; or a & # 39; bump in the way & # 39 ;. This is only part of the chaos and long-term damage that our country would suffer. We have to stop this. & # 39;
And Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn tweeted: & official government documents confirm Boris Johnson is willing to punish those who can least afford it with a No Deal Brexit to benefit his wealthy friends.
& # 39; It must be stopped. & # 39;
But Brexiteer Nigel Farage, in an appearance on ITV's Peston on Wednesday, rejected the fear of food shortages as & # 39; complete and utter nonsense & # 39 ;.
He said: “I have never seen complete trash in my entire life, unlike these Whitehall officials, I have spent 20 years in international trade, buying and selling goods, and shipping them around the world.
& # 39; The idea that there are more than 100 active ports in the UK, that even if there was a problem at Dover, there would be food shortages, it is complete and utter nonsense.
& # 39; It is Project Fear Mark II, and it must be completely, completely, completely ignored. & # 39;
The government refused to transfer messages between No10 assistants, including Dominic Cummings and Cleo Watson – pictured on arrival today in Downing Street
SNP MP Joanna Cherry, pictured today in Edinburgh, described the statement as & # 39; historical & # 39; and & # 39; fantastic & # 39;
The lack of additional information puts No10 on a collision course with Remainer MPs after they requested access to personal telephones in an attempt to prove that Boris Johnson had suspended parliament to prevent Brexit control.
MPs voted in favor of 311 to 302 on Monday to tell number 10 advisors to hand over WhatsApp, Facebook and text messages and for ministers to fully release their No Deal emergency plans.
Retail experts say & # 39; a harmful Brexit without a deal is not in anyone's interest & # 39;
Helen Dickinson, managing director of the British Retail Consortium, said: “The Yellowhammer document confirms what retailers have said over the past three years – the availability of fresh food will decrease, consumer choice will decrease and prices will rise.
& # 39; This is not good for the UK public and this is not good for UK retailers.
& # 39; A Brexit without a deal in November represents the worst possible timing for the retailers and consumers it serves.
Opslag The availability of storage will be limited as retailers prepare for Black Friday and Christmas, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables will be out of season in the UK and imports will be hampered by disruptions by the Channel Streets that flow up to 60 % can be reduced for up to three months.
Terwijl While retailers are making every effort to prepare for a no-deal Brexit, it is impossible to fully mitigate the negative impact it would have – something that the government itself has recognized.
& # 39; The fact remains that a harmful Brexit without agreement is in nobody's interest and it is vital that a solution is quickly found that guarantees frictionless tariff-free trade with the EU after our departure. & # 39;
The MPs, led by former Tory Attorney General Dominic Grieve, have set a deadline for the material to be returned at 11 p.m. yesterday.
But the refusal to do this is likely to cause a backlash from Remainer MPs such as Dominic Grieve and Hilary Benn.
The document was released after a Commons motion put down by the former Attorney General of Tory.
In the letter to Mr Grieve on Wednesday, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove, who oversees no-deal planning, said the document detailed a & # 39; reasonable worst case scenario & # 39 ;.
Mr Gove said that the government was opposed to the release of electronic communications issued by said officials and special government advisers regarding the suspension of Parliament as set out in the Commons motion.
The minister said: & # 39; The naming of persons without regard to their rights or the consequences thereof goes far beyond any reasonable right of Parliament under this procedure.
& # 39; It is against the basic principles of justice and the duty of care of the government towards its employees. & # 39;
The Grieve motion mentioned key figures in Mr. Johnson's government, including senior adviser Dominic Cummings and director of legislative affairs Nikki da Costa.
Last night, Dominic Grieve said: “Even a partial release of the Yellowhammer documents is enough to show how deep the damage would be caused by a no-deal exit from the EU.
& # 39; Boris Johnson cannot portray a undemocratic no-deal about the country as patriotic. On the contrary, it would be very harmful to our economic interests and to social cohesion.
& # 39; As the curator of the One Nation, I am deeply afraid of the long-term damage that a reckless approach – which runs knowingly & riskily, increases poverty and even threatens medical supplies – both people and our party will do. This must be stopped.
& # 39; Because we cannot trust Boris Johnson to stop this disaster, we must trust the people. We need to give the public the final say in a new referendum with the option to keep our current deal as members of the EU. & # 39;
Boris Johnson (shown yesterday in London) suffered another setback when Scottish judges ruled that his suspension of parliament is illegal. It is expected that the case will be appealed to the Supreme Court
It comes the same day that an Edinburgh court ruled that prorogation was unlawful because the prime minister intended to control his Brexit policy & # 39; stymnen & # 39; – not to pave the way for a new legislative program as he claimed.
Could Boris Johnson be forced to recall MPs?
Boris Johnson's decision to preach the parliament for five weeks at an important pre-Brexit time for the country followed a flattened constitutional path.
The decision to close the legislature is ultimately taken by the queen, but on the advice of the prime minister of the day and the Privy Council.
The monarch spoke to Mr. Johnson by telephone before Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg flew to Balmoral at the end of August to personally present the government's plan.
She gave the government a short window to perform the prorogation and the decision was made to do it on Monday, after Boris Johnson made a final (failed) attempt to convince MPs to back his plea for a general election in October.
The spectacle involved led to chaotic scenes in the Commons in the early hours of Tuesday when opposition MPs tried to stop speaker John Bercow who accompanied Black Rod to the Lords, where the proclamation was read out and officially recorded.
Today's decision in Scotland is unlikely to change anything immediately, despite the call to reopen Parliament's doors today.
But the decision of the Supreme Court in London on Tuesday would carry full political and legal weight.
If the court of last resort, if it confirms the ruling that Mr. Johnson's advice to the queen was illegal, the closure would effectively be annulled.
It is unclear what exactly would happen – since Parliament would resume the sitting, but the government did not submit any cases.
The shock outcome in Edinburgh sets the scene for a gigantic confrontation on Tuesday at the Supreme Court in London – with the risk that the queen will be dragged into the constitutional crisis.
While Westminster descended into chaos, Remainers claimed that Mr. Johnson had deceived Parliament's prince and preaching for five weeks & # 39; – what happened in the early hours of yesterday morning by Royal proclamation – was now invalid.
There was more anger after a No10 source reportedly swept that the Scottish courts & # 39; for a reason & # 39; were chosen, with Nicola Sturgeon the jibe as & # 39; pathetic & # 39; and undermined the rule of law.
Attorney General Robert Buckland tried to calm down the line by tweeting that he & # 39; total confidence & # 39; had independence from judges, while the Prime Minister's official spokesperson repeated the message.
Because MPs demanded that the houses & # 39; immediately & # 39; had to be recalled, some staged protests stepped up by tweeting selfies of their own in the Commons room.
Rebel leader Dominic Grieve said that Johnson must resign if he misled the queen about his motives, while Labor's David Lammy accused him of cheating & # 39; of the frost.
Meanwhile, Baron Len McCluskey has made the extraordinary suggestion that Johnson should be arrested under & # 39; civil arrest & # 39; to place.
Downing Street denied that the prime minister had misled the queen. A spokesperson said repeatedly under pressure from journalists about the allegation: & I think I am pretty clear that the reasons for prorogation have been consistent everywhere. & # 39;
No10 sources insisted that Parliament remain protocoled until the Supreme Court decides next week, and suggested that a different royal proclamation would be needed for MPs to sit down again before the current scheduled date of October 14.
Judge Lord Doherty rejected a challenge against the planned prorogation to the Court of Session last Wednesday and said it is up to politicians and not to the courts to decide.
What happens next in the Brexit crisis?
Here's how the coming weeks can end:
September 14-17: Lib Dem conference takes place in Bournemouth
September the 17th: Supreme Court deals with the issue of whether parliament's prorogation was illegal.
September 21-25: Labor conference in Brighton
September 29 – October 2: The Tory conference is taking place in Manchester, with Mr. Johnson on the last day as the first keynote speech as leader. This will be a crucial way to know how the Brexit conversations are going.
14 October: Unless it has already been recalled after the trial, Pparliament returns with the Queen & # 39; s Speech – the day before Mr. Johnson hoped to hold an unexpected election.
October 17-18: A top EU summit in Brussels, where Johnson has vowed that he will try to get a Brexit deal, despite Remainers destroying his negotiating position & # 39; & # 39 ;.
19 October: If there is no Brexit deal on that date, the remaining legislation requires the prime minister to beg the EU to avoid an extension to No Deal.
21st of October: Decisive votes about the Queen's speech, which could pave the way for a vote of confidence.
October 31st: The current deadline for the UK to leave the EU.
November December: An election seems inevitable, but Labor hints that it could push the date back to Christmas to humiliate the prime minister.
But a panel of three judges in Edinburgh overturned that decision.
A summary of the judgment reads: & # 39; The Inner House of the Court of Session has ruled that the Prime Minister's advice to HM the Queen that the United Kingdom should be a day between September 9 and September 12 through October 14 was unlawful because it was intended to hinder Parliament.
& # 39; All three judges in the first division have decided that the Prime Minister's advice to HM the Queen is justified, that it was motivated by the improper purpose of parodying the parliament and that, and what ensues from it is illegal.
& # 39; The court will issue an order accordingly stating that the Prime Minister's advice to HM the Queen and the subsequent prorogation was unlawful and therefore invalid and ineffective. & # 39;
Judge Lord Carloway said to the court at the hearing: & we believe that the government's advice to her majesty the queen to the prorogue parliament was unlawful and that the prorogation itself was unlawful. & # 39;
A British government spokesman said: “We are disappointed with today's decision and will appeal to the British Supreme Court.
& # 39; The UK government needs to present a strong national legislative agenda. Proroguing Parliament is the legal and necessary way to achieve this. & # 39;
The case has now been brought before the Supreme Court in London, where it is expected to be handled alongside a similar case from campaigner Gina Miller.
That challenge was rejected by the Supreme Court last week – but judges gave permission to appeal to the Supreme Court.
In a burning jibe, one No10 source said to the sun: & We note that the High Court in London did not judge last week that prorogation was illegal.
& # 39; It is not for nothing that legal activists choose Scottish courts. & # 39;
The comment was quickly rejected by the Prime Minister's assistants, but SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said: & # 39; This is pathetic, pathetic and desperate from No10. & # 39;
Operation Yellowhammer & # 39; No Deal & # 39; Brexit planning documents say there will be NO food shortages – but prices will go up, two-day queues on the channel will last three months and financial services will be affected
from James Wood
The government has Operation Yellowhammer & # 39; reasonable assumptions in the worst case of planning & # 39; published in the case of a no-deal Brexit, and they reveal that there will be NO food shortages.
The edited versions of the document released tonight describe how the country could be affected by a sudden departure from the European Union, and when they were leaked earlier this year, they were accused of & # 39; scarem mongering & # 39 ;
But the document released today shows that there is no food shortage in the case of a no-deal exit from the European Union as opposed to previous fears, but instead a reduction in & availability and choice of products & # 39 ;
Elsewhere, the & # 39; months of chaos & # 39; predicted in UK ports to be less serious than previously expected – with the documents that only the & # 39; worst disruption & # 39; which will last three months.
Nevertheless, the document reveals that 20 & # 39; most important planning assumptions & # 39; contains – one of which has been partially amended – a number of very real concerns about a no-deal exit, including increases in electricity prices, delays in importing medicines, protests in the UK and disruption of financial services
A series of bullets starts the document, followed by the 20 & # 39; most important planning assumptions & # 39 ;. These warn how the public and companies are not fully prepared for a no deal.
Formatted versions of the documents released tonight outline how the country can be affected by a sudden departure from the EU (above and below)
And that the risks associated with winter and autumn & # 39; such as heavy weather, floods and seasonal flu & # 39; the effects may worsen and resources may stretch.
Planning assumptions start with explaining how Mr. Johnson's Brexit departure date on October 31st & # 39; does not work to the government's advantage – it is a Friday. The end date can also coincide with the end of the half-yearly holidays of October, the document warns.
Then it continues with warnings about how France will impose mandatory EU controls on British goods & # 39; on day 1 no deal & # 39; – D1ND as the document refers to it – and it will have built infrastructure and IT systems to manage and process customs declarations and a risk-based control regime.
The document says: & # 39; On D1ND, between 50-85 percent of the trucks traveling through the short Channel Straits may not be ready for French customs.
& # 39; The trader's lack of readiness in combination with limited space in French ports to & # 39; Keeping non-ready & # 39; trucks down, the flow can be reduced to 40-60 percent of the current levels in one day, because non-ready trucks fill the gates and block the flow.
& # 39; The worst disruption of the short Channel Streets can take up to 3 months to improve significantly to around 50-70 percent (as more traders prepare), although the disruption can last considerably longer.
& # 39; Disruption by the short Canal Streets would also lead to significant queues in Kent and delays for trucks trying to use the routes to travel to France.
& # 39; In a reasonable worst-case scenario, trucks can be confronted with maximum delays of 1.5-2.5 days before they can cross the border. & # 39;
The document – that says the assumptions & # 39; from August 2 & # 39; this year – will then continue to discuss how UK citizens traveling to and from the EU may be subject to increased immigration controls at EU border posts.
It warns: & # 39; This can result in delays for passengers in St Pancras, Cheriton (Channel Tunnel) and Dover where adjacent controls are present.
& # 39; Depending on the plans that EU member states have set up to cope with these increased immigration controls, it is likely that delays will occur for UK arrivals and departures at EU airports and ports.
& # 39; This may cause some disruption to the transportation services. Travelers can decide to use alternative routes to complete their journey. & # 39;
The document then discusses how electricity prices are likely to rise, although there is not expected to be a supply disruption.
It says: & # 39; Energy demand will be met and there will be no disruptions for electricity or gas connections. In Northern Ireland, the electricity supply on day 1 will not be disrupted immediately.
& # 39; However, there is likely to be a significant increase in the power prince for consumers (businesses and households), with associated broader economic and political implications. Some participants could leave the market, which would increase the economic and political impact. & # 39;
Warning against drug shortages, the document outlines how & # 39; dependence on drugs and medicines & # 39; Crossing the supply chains on the short strait makes them particularly vulnerable to serious long-term delays & # 39 ;.
It adds: & # 39; Some products can be stored, others not because of a short shelf life – it is also not practical to store products to cover expected delays of up to six months. & # 39;
More specifically, the document further examines how a disruption or reduction in the supply of veterinary medicinal products reduces the capacity & # 39; to prevent and control outbreaks of diseases & # 39; can reduce.
He noted how this could have "potential harmful effects on animal health and welfare, the environment and wider food safety / availability and zoonotic diseases that can directly affect human health".
But with regard to food, the document notes that there will be no overall deficit in the UK, despite a reduction in the supply of certain types of fresh food.
It says: & # 39; Critical dependencies for the food supply chain (such as important ingredients, chemicals and packaging) are possible in a shorter range. In combination, these two factors will not lead to a general food shortage in the UK, but will reduce the availability and choice of products and increase the price, which can affect vulnerable groups. & # 39;
The document adds that the growing season in the UK is coming to an end and that the supply of agricultural products will come under increasing pressure – mainly due to preparations for Christmas.
It says: & # 39; The government will not be able to fully anticipate all possible consequences for the food supply. There is a risk that panic purchases will aggravate food supply disruption. & # 39;
The risk to water resources is low, it says, with water companies & # 39; well prepared for any disruption & # 39 ;. And if there is any disruption, then this is likely to only affect hundreds of thousands of people & # 39 ;.
Operation Yellowhammer also outlines how law enforcement and data sharing between the UK and the EU will be disrupted, and how some cross-border financial services will be disrupted.
Het waarschuwt vervolgens hoe Britse onderdanen hun EU-burgerschap zullen verliezen en als gevolg daarvan kunnen verwachten dat zij in de loop van de tijd bijbehorende rechten en toegang tot diensten zullen verliezen.
Bovendien neemt het nota van de impact op Gibraltar van een No Deal-exit – die als gevolg van grenscontroles aan de grens met Spanje verstoring van de levering van goederen (inclusief voedsel), medicijnen, grensoverschrijdende verzending van verspilling en vertragingen van maximaal vier uur gedurende ten minste een paar maanden.
Het voegt eraan toe: 'Langdurige grensvertragingen op langere termijn zullen waarschijnlijk een negatieve invloed hebben op de economie van Gibraltar. Net als het Britse vasteland zullen ook grensoverschrijdende diensten en datastromen worden verstoord.
'Ondanks de verlenging van de EU-exit, heeft Gibraltar nog steeds geen beslissingen genomen om te investeren in noodinfrastructuur (havenaanpassingen; apparatuur voor afvalbeheer) en er zijn nog steeds zorgen dat Gibraltar niet alle noodzakelijke wetgeving voor No Deal heeft aangenomen.'
Het document waarschuwt ook voor protesten en tegenprotesten in het Verenigd Koninkrijk, die 'aanzienlijke hoeveelheden politiemiddelen zouden kunnen absorberen' – eraan toevoegend dat er ook een toename kan zijn van publieke wanorde en spanningen in de gemeenschap.
Brandstoftekorten zijn ook waarschijnlijk, waarschuwt het document, en dit zou kunnen leiden tot verstoring van de reis – vooral als verkeerswachtrijen in Kent de Dartford-kruising blokkeren. Een zeventiende punt voegt eraan toe: 'Lage inkomensgroepen zullen onevenredig worden getroffen door eventuele stijgingen van voedsel en brandstof'.
Een veertiende punt in het document is gewijzigd, maar er wordt gespeculeerd dat het over brandstof zou kunnen gaan – het volgt het dertiende punt over tekorten en reisverstoring.
Hierna zegt het Yellowhammer-document dat tot 282 EU- en EER-landen vissersvaartuigen illegaal zouden kunnen binnenvaren of al vissen in Britse wateren (tot 129 schepen in Engelse wateren, 100 schepen in Schotse wateren, 40 schepen in Welsh wateren, 13 vaartuigen in Noord-Ierse wateren) op dag één.
'Dit zal waarschijnlijk woede en frustratie veroorzaken in de Britse vangstsector, wat kan leiden tot zowel botsingen tussen vissersvaartuigen als een toename van niet-naleving van de binnenlandse vloot.
'Concurrerende eisen aan de Britse overheid en maritieme agentschappen van DA en hun activa kunnen handhavings- en reactievermogen in gevaar brengen, met name in geval van gelijktijdige of cumulatieve incidenten, waaronder waarschijnlijk; illegale visvangst, grensovertredingen (smokkel en illegale migratie), en alle wanorde of criminaliteit die hierdoor ontstaat, bijv. gewelddadige geschillen of blokkades van havens ', staat er.
Over sociale zorg staat: 'Er wordt aangenomen dat er geen grote verandering zal zijn in de sociale zorg voor volwassenen op de dag na het vertrek van de EU.
'De markt voor volwassen sociale zorg is al kwetsbaar vanwege de afnemende financiële levensvatbaarheid van aanbieders.
'Een toename van de inflatie na exit uit de EU zou aanzienlijke gevolgen hebben voor volwassen sociale zorgverleners als gevolg van stijgende personeels- en toeleveringskosten, en kan leiden tot falen van providers, met kleinere providers binnen 2-3 maanden en grotere aanbieders 4-6 maanden na exit.
'Er zijn ook mogelijke gelijktijdige gelokaliseerde risico's: verstoring van het vervoer of personeel, zwaar winterweer of griep die de bestaande kwetsbaarheid van de markt zou kunnen verergeren, en dat cumulatief middelen van aanbieders en LA's zou kunnen uitrekken.
'Er zal informatie blijven worden verzameld om te waarschuwen voor / zich voor te bereiden op eventuele gevolgen voor de sector, waaronder de sluiting van diensten en het teruggeven van contracten die geen deel uitmaken van de normale marktfunctie.
'Bovendien zullen we medio augustus de status van de voorbereidingen bij vier lokale autoriteiten bekijken, die als prioritaire problemen worden aangemerkt.'
De documenten werden vrijgegeven nadat voormalig procureur-generaal Dominic Grieve eiste dat alle schriftelijke en elektronische contacten over de tijdelijke opschorting van de documenten van Parlement en Operatie Yellowhammer sinds 23 juli werden vrijgegeven. Zijn eis werd door parlementsleden goedgekeurd met 311 stemmen tegen 302 op maandag.
Zijn motie vroeg om alle correspondentie en communicatie, formeel of informeel, inclusief WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, Facebook Messenger, privé-e-mailaccounts, sms-berichten, iMessage en officiële en persoonlijke mobiele telefoons die sinds 23 juli verbonden zijn met de huidige regering met betrekking tot prorogatie.
Het vermeldde sleutelfiguren van de regering van de heer Johnson, waaronder senior adviseur Dominic Cummings en directeur van wetgevende zaken Nikki da Costa.
Kanselier van het hertogdom van Lancaster Michael Gove, die verantwoordelijk is voor no-deal planning, schreef woensdag aan de heer Grieve dat dit 'ongekend gebruik van de … procedure' was.
