Question for HM Treasury

UIN 68219, tabled on 16 March 2017

To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to the Answer of 2 February 2017 to Question 62381, whether the national and regional analysis is founded upon the assumption of reverting to World Trade Organisation rules after the UK leaves the EU; what the timescale for the analysis is; whether he plans to publish the analysis; and what discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union on that analysis.

HM Treasury are working with the Department for Exiting the European Union and other government departments to undertake a wide range of analysis of leaving the European Union.

Government policy is to leave the EU and to make a success of Brexit. We are pursuing a bespoke arrangement and the best possible deal for Britain.
