To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how much time his Department spent in compiling impact assessments and other material for the sectoral analyses it provided to the Department for Exiting the European Union; how many FTE staff hours were dedicated to that compilation; and on what date his Department started and concluded its work on that compilation.

The Government has provided over 800 pages of analysis to the committee. This analysis has been contained in a range of documents, developed at different times. Given how closely woven EU exit work and routine Departmental business are, it is not possible to calculate how much time was spent in compiling this material.
