May acknowledged more work was needed to reach an agreement with her Brussels counterparts.
“We want to leave with a good deal and we are confident we can reach one. But, of course, there is still a lot more negotiating to be done,” she said.
“So it is only responsible that we have also spent time this summer preparing for a no-deal scenario, just as the EU have done too … For some sectors there would be real challenges for both the UK and the EU. But we would get through it and go on to thrive. So we will be ready for a no-deal if we need to be.”
May’s comments come after “The People’s Vote” campaign recently secured support and funding from several high-profile backers.
