MICHAEL GOVE today dismissed claims from Chancellor George Osborne he is not making plans for Brexit and insisted Treasury officials have been preparing for Britain to quit the EU.

With just two days until Britain’s historic vote on EU membership, the Justice Secretary rubbished suggestions the Government has neglected to consider the possibility of a Leave result on Thursday.

Yesterday, the Chancellor had stressed in the long-term there was “no plan” for the UK leaving the EU and claimed there would be no answer for “years and years” to come.

But Mr Gove, who sits in the Cabinet with Mr Osborne, said the Chancellor’s department will have been devising a strategy for the UK to successfully walk away from the 28-country bloc.

The leading Brexit campaigner told LBC Radio: “One of the things about this campaign is people on the Remain side have to maintain right up until the vote a particular stance and I don’t criticise them for it.

“The French politicians will say if you vote to leave then these terrible things will happen and people in the Treasury have to maintain with iron certainty that we’re definitely going to vote to remain and they mustn’t allow for any alternative possibility to be entertained.

“But inside the Treasury and indeed in the French foreign office they’re preparing for a Leave vote and preparing to ensure that it works in the most stable way in all our interests.

“But it’s one of those things you can’t admit.”
