The Polish government is discussing a plan that would help prepare the country in the case of Britain leaving the European Union without an agreement.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and his Cabinet are taking up the draft legislation during their regularly weekly meeting Tuesday.
Konrad Szymanski, a deputy foreign minister responsible for European issues, told the Polish news agency PAP that the plan should help alleviate the most acute consequences of a no-deal Brexit.
Britain is due to leave the EU on March 29, but Parliament has rejected May’s deal, raising the prospect of a chaotic, economically damaging departure from the bloc.
Hanging in the balance is also the fate of hundreds of thousands of Poles who have settled in the U.K. since Poland joined the EU in 2004.
