To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, with reference to page 22 of the Government's No-Deal Readiness report, what assessment his Department has made of the total cost to (a) travel operators and (b) consumers of increased regulatory requirements in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

As legislation has been introduced that readies the UK for a no deal exit, an assessment of the impacts of each of these measures has been undertaken. This considers the impacts of the no deal legislation when compared to the status acquis of remaining in the EU.

For measures of less than £5m of cost or benefit to business in any given year, light-touch assessments are conducted. For policies above this threshold, a full impact assessment is undertaken and published. The impacts to all parties are considered in these assessments.
