The Government is undertaking a comprehensive programme of analytical work looking at the implications of UK withdrawal from the EU. We are 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.

The Government is committed to negotiating a deep and special partnership with the European Union to get the very best deal for businesses and citizens. We want a bold and ambitious free trade agreement, greater in scope than any before it, that allows British companies the maximum freedom to trade with and operate within EU markets, and that lets European business do the same in Britain.

The Government is conducting a wide-ranging programme of analysis and we have been clear that we will not disclose any material at a time that could affect the UK’s position in these negotiations. Parliament has previously voted not to release information that would be prejudicial to our negotiating position.
