No guarantees on jobs if it's no-deal: Rudd
There are "no guarantees" that people will not lose their jobs following a no-deal Brexit, Amber Rudd has admitted.
The Work and Pensions Secretary said there are "no guarantees about jobs, in or out, under any economic circumstances", and said a no-deal Brexit would be "far worse than a deal Brexit".
Ms Rudd said the Government is focused on getting a deal, but that they have to be prepared should a no-deal situation arise on October 31.
Ms Rudd said: "A no-deal Brexit is definitely going to be a challenge for the economy, which is why the Government is putting together so much preparation should it come to that, and we are very clearly focused as a Government that we want to get a deal."
