To ask the Secretary of State for International Development, what assessment his Department has made of the potential effect of the UK leaving the EU with no deal on his Department’s ability to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 17 in the UK.

Leaving the EU, with or without a deal, will not affect our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals. The UK’s first Voluntary National Review (VNR) of the Goals will be published on 26 June. The VNR will review UK action in support of Goal 17. It will also outline key challenges and next steps, recognising that while progress is being made, there is more work to do.
