Government threatens to opt for WTO Brexit if talks with EU aren’t making enough progress by June

Here is paragraph 9 from the document in full.

In this passage, the government is threatening to walk away from the talks in June if at that point the “broad outline” of a deal is not apparent.

Instead of the government would revert to preparing for what used to be called a “no deal” scenario – trading with the EU on WTO terms – although ministers are now banned from calling that “no deal” (on the grounds that this would not be the same as leaving the EU with no deal of any sort, because the withdrawal agreement was signed).

The government will not extend the transition period provided for in the withdrawal agreement. This leaves a limited, but sufficient, time for the UK and the EU to reach agreement. The UK is committed to working in a speedy and determined fashion to do so, with an appropriate number of negotiating rounds between now and the June high-level meeting foreseen in the political declaration. The government would hope that, by that point, the broad outline of an agreement would be clear and be capable of being rapidly finalized by September. If that does not seem to be the case at the June meeting, the government will need to decide whether the UK’s attention should move away from negotiations and focus solely on continuing domestic preparations to exit the transition period in an orderly fashion. In so doing, it will be necessary to take into account in particular whether good progress has been possible on the least controversial areas of the negotiations, and whether the various autonomous processes on both sides are proceeding on a technical basis according to agreed deadlines.
