To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the effect on the public purse of a delay to the UK leaving the EU.

The Prime Minister has made clear that she does not want to see Article 50 extended, and the absolute focus of the Government is leaving the European Union on 29 March with a deal.

We are currently focused on getting this deal passed by 12 March, and if that does not happen, the PM has set out the next steps.

If Article 50 is delayed the fiscal impact will depend on the precise arrangements agreed with the EU at the time.
