To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether regional impact assessments will be published for (a) the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill, (b) the Political Declaration and (c) the UK’s mandate for the next phase of negotiations on the UK's future relationship with the EU.

The election result has shown that the British people want to get Brexit done, and they have given the government a strong and clear mandate to that end.

The government published an Impact Assessment in support of the WAB in October. It is a standard assessment of the direct costs and benefits to businesses of the elements of the Bill and remains valid for the current WAB.

The specifics of our future relationship with the EU will be the subject of the next phase of negotiations. We will keep Parliament updated throughout those discussions and provide analysis at appropriate points.

The Chancellor has stated that the upcoming Budget will set out ambitious plans to unleash Britain’s potential, level up across the UK and usher in a decade of renewal.
