To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what recent estimate his Department has made of the number of UK-based businesses based in (a) Lewisham Deptford constituency, (b) the London Borough of Lewisham, (c) London and (d) the UK that are considering relocating out of the UK in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
The Government is working to ensure an orderly exit from the EU and a good deal for the UK. We continue to engage extensively with business across the country, including London, to understand their concerns.
The Government is providing businesses with the latest advice and information to ensure that they are prepared for all aspects of leaving the EU. The guidance published at https://euexitbusiness.campaign.gov.uk/ helps businesses locate the most relevant information based on their sector and activities.
