Jersey's External Relations Minister has said the States remain prepared for when Britain leaves the EU despite tonight's defeat of Theresa May's Brexit deal.
Senator Ian Gorst has said Jersey will fully scrutinise any alternatives that the prime minister brings forward to the withdrawal terms.
"Jersey will scrutinise any revised Withdrawal terms. We will maintain our objective that any transition period should apply to Jersey and on the basis of the current Protocol 3 arrangements.
"Until an agreement is reached, the default position remains that the United Kingdom will leave the EU on 29 March with no deal. As I have made clear, this is the basis on which the Government of Jersey's Brexit preparations have been built.
"All government departments have prepared individual Brexit Readiness Plans, setting out their objectives in the event of a no deal, risks and mitigations, and resource requirements.
Senator Gorst also said he wants to assure islanders that whatever the new alternatives put forward by Theresa May, he wants to make sure the interests of Jersey are communicated to the UK government.
"'I want to reassure you that, whatever new proposals are brought, and whatever form Brexit finally takes, we will continue to ensure that the interests of Jersey are communicated to the UK government, and taken into account. And that Jersey will continue to be a place where business and residents can remain confident in their future."
Theresa May's Brexit deal was defeated in the Commons by 230 votes and she will now have to bring forward new proposals and survive a no confidence vote.
