To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland, 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 collated over 800 pages of analysis for the committees.
As we have said before, the “58 impact assessments” requested in the motion do not exist in the form Parliament requested. We have taken time to bring together information in a way that meets Parliament’s specific ask.
With regards to how many FTE staff hours were dedicated to the compilation, the Department does not hold this information in the form requested.
The Department for Exiting the European Union has satisfied the motion passed in the House of Commons by bringing together information for these reports. The Committee on Exiting the EU voted on Wednesday 6 December that the Government’s response to the resolution of the House of 1 November has complied with the terms of that resolution.
