Government ‘planning for martial law’ under emergency no-deal Brexit preparations

A Downing Street spokesperson said: “Respecting the referendum decision means leaving the EU.
“The PM has said that there will be disruption in the event of no deal, but as a responsible Government we are taking the appropriate steps to minimise this disruption and ensure the country is prepared.”
A source told the Sunday Times: “As no-deal preparations are accelerated and training is rolled out to civil servants, questions have been raised about the legislation and how it could be used in the event of a no-deal Brexit.”
What is a state of emergency in the UK?
The government has emergency powers under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 and the legislation allows ministers to temporarily suspend the rule of law for 30 days.
This could be in response to “an event or situation which threatens serious damage to human welfare” or “serious damage to the environment of the United Kingdom or of a part or region”.
The idea Mr Johnson could resort to using the powers has emerged out of the deadlock caused by a MPs passing a law, known as the Benn Act, forcing him to seek a Brexit extension.
The legislation – dubbed the Surrender Act by the Prime Minister – means he has to seek an extension on October 19 if no deal has been agreed.
