We are undertaking a comprehensive programme of analytical work looking at the implications of UK withdrawal from the EU. The Government is examining all areas of the UK economy and seeking input from a wide range of businesses and industry bodies in order to inform our negotiations with the EU.

Our overall analytical programme of work is comprehensive, thorough and is continuously updated. We have conducted a range of quantitative and qualitative analysis looking at the implications of EU Exit on the domestic economy. However, these are not in form of discrete market access assessments.

The sector reports recently shared with Members and Peers - which, among other things, contain factual information describing each sector, and a summary of sector views of UK withdrawal - form part of this work.
