Official documents that the UK government had to show after pressure from parliament revealed that a London exit from the EU without an agreement would result in high fuel prices, disruption of drug supplies and general disturbances on Britain’s streets.

The Guardian newspaper said the five-page confidential document, which deals with assumptions planned by the UK government under operation “Yellow Hammer”, a government plan to withdraw without agreement, was unveiled in response to a parliamentary proposal aimed at pressuring the government.

The contents of the document were surprisingly similar to the plan published by the Sunday Times in August, which the government denied at the time as outdated.

A proposal led by former Attorney General Dominic Grieve and approved by the House of Commons on Monday evening with Johnson’s readiness to suspend parliament, demanded the publication of documents, many of which were leaked in August.

Downing Street said at the time that the document had been revoked, and government sources indicated that disgruntled former ministers had leaked it. Former finance minister Philip Hammond later demanded an apology from Johnson when the document was timed in August, until he took office.

The document, which says it sets out the worst planning assumptions for Brexit without agreement, highlights the risk of delays at the border as some 85 percent of trucks crossing the canal may not be ready for a new customs regime for France.
