Talking about Ireland...

Ireland is set to remove oil reserves from Britain preparing for a possible no-deal Brexit scenario.

"Around 1m tonnes of Ireland's oil reserves are held in ports around the country while the remaining 500,000 tonnes are kept in Britain, Holland, Denmark and Spain.

Once removed from the UK, the oil will be transferred either back to Ireland or to one of the EU countries which store Ireland's reserves.

It is also understood the Government has explored the possibility of France storing our oil. The Government could also remove the country's oil reserves from the UK through trade deals.

This would involve shifting ownership of oil reserves in other EU member states.

For example, ownership of British oil in France could be switched to Ireland and some of the Government's reserves could be left in the UK.

The Government has advanced its contingency planning after the EU Commission's Brexit preparedness unit issued instructions to member states to prepare for a 'no-deal' scenario."
