September 30, 2019 at 17:32 GMT +00:00 · Published

The UK's Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid reiterated the government’s position that the UK would leave the European Union on October 31 "deal, or no deal" in a speech at the annual Conservative Party conference in Manchester on Monday.

"We are leaving the European Union. It's not a matter of if - it's a matter of days. 31 days - deal, or no deal," he said. "We understand that preparing to leave without a deal is not only the responsible thing to do, but also the best way of leaving with a deal."

Javid also announced that, in preparation for a potential no deal Brexit, he had "agreed to guarantee all £4.3 billion of EU-directed funding that [UK organisations] would have been expecting."
