Question for Department for Exiting the European Union

UIN 278949, tabled on 18 July 2019

To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what assessments the Government has made of the potential effects on (a) the economy, (b) policing and (c) public safety of the UK not leaving the EU; and if they will publish those assessments.

The Government does not hold this information; the EU will determine its policy direction once a new Commission takes office on 1 November. The British people voted to leave the European Union and the Government is committed to delivering this by 31 October.

However, in November 2018 the Government published analysis of the long run economic impact of leaving the EU across a range of scenarios, and a separate assessment of the Future Security Partnership. It is worth noting that the UK only participates in certain parts of the EU policing acquis.
