To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, with reference to paragraph 8 of the February 2019 report Implications for Business and Trade of a No Deal Exit on 29 March 2019, what proportion of (a) all and (b) the most critical no deal projects are on track.
The Government has over 300 work streams looking at specific no deal plans across a range of sectors and these are well advanced. There is still some work to be done but departments are making sensible decisions about prioritisation.
The underlying detail for each workstream, including any assessment of progress, is exceptionally sensitive. If workstreams - or the underlying data - were made public, both our negotiating position and our ability to manage delivery across the programme would be significantly damaged.
