Britain will use Brexit money to prepare for all outcomes - ministry official

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will use extra money set aside for Brexit on preparations for all possible outcomes from the talks to leave the European Union, an official at the finance ministry said on Wednesday.

The official said the 3 billion pounds chancellor Philip Hammond put aside in his budget for Brexit preparations was broadly based on what departments said they would need to spend.
