I attended the Inter-Ministerial Group for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (IMG) on 10 October.

This meeting was brought forward from 28 October to allow for timely discussion of no deal issues ahead of a potential exit from the EU on 31 October.

Our discussions focussed on how we can support some of our key sectors in the event of market failure following a no deal exit, as well as other no deal issues. I reiterated my concerns of the catastrophic impacts of a no deal impact on Wales.

A communiqué regarding this meeting can be found on the UK government website.
