The government is in the process of carrying out a programme of rigorous and extensive analytical work that will contribute to our exit negotiations with the EU and inform our understanding of how EU exit will affect the UK’s domestic policies and frameworks.

However, it is not standard practice to provide an ongoing commentary on internal analysis.

Ministers have a specific responsibility, which Parliament has endorsed, not to release information that would expose our negotiating position.
