Labour call for recall of Parliament after #OperationYellowhammer docs set out disruption to food, fuel and medicines and hard border in NI

- Cabinet minister triggers row by saying Leave voters think judges are biased

- PM rejects demand to publish advisers' messages
#OperationYellowhammer key questions this morning:

1/ What can Government do to “turbocharge” preparations given the documents say public and business readiness for low deal will remain at a low level due to uncertainty about what they’re preparing for:
2/ Government say an updated version will be produced in coming days. Will it do much to mitigate fact that medicines have too short a shelf life to be stockpiled, the docs say:
3/ How to mitigate lorry delays of up to 2.5 days if France enforce full checks at border?
4/ Government deny this was ever anything other than a worst case scenario (although still very tricky even if only half of it happens).

But when this was all leaked to @RosamundUrwin at the Sunday Times, why was it described as the base case?

@RosamundUrwin 5/ Other no deal assessments seen by the cabinet have not been released.

Ex-cabinet ministers who saw those say this is only the short term disruption.
6/ Hard border: documents concede that the position of no checks on the NI border is “likely to prove unsustainable”.

Is that still the Government’s position given that their strategy to get a deal hinges on “alternative arrangements” working?
