We welcome the report from the North East Brexit Group. The Government is committed to positive and productive engagement with key business stakeholders, academic institutions and local government in the North East, as well as all of the UK, to understand the potential impact and opportunities presented by EU Exit. We are undertaking a wide range of ongoing analysis in support of our EU exit negotiations and preparations and so will consider this report as part of that.

We are committed to getting the best possible deal for the United Kingdom - a deal that works for all parts of the UK including the North East.

Our overall programme of work is comprehensive, thorough and is continuously updated.

The Government has confirmed that when we bring forward the vote on the final deal, we will ensure that Parliament is presented with the appropriate analysis to make an informed decision.
