The U.K.'s new government is currently working under the assumption that the country's exit from the European Union will happen without a renegotiation of its agreement with the bloc.
That's according to senior ministers in the country, who told Al Jazeera that preparations were underway for a "no-deal" Brexit on October 31.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he's planning to seek a new exit deal with the E.U. But that seems unlikely, as the bloc has previously rejected the idea of a renegotiated deal.
Johnson has placed Michael Gove in charge of "no-deal" preparations. Gove recently wrote in a British paper that "no deal is now a very real prospect and we must make sure that we are ready."
Ministers are planning a "no-deal" emergency budget in the week of October 7.
