To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many of the 28 questionnaires sent from the European Commission on areas where equivalence assessments are possible the Government has answered; and whether the Government plans to answer the remaining questionnaires.

As I set out at the Lords’ EU Services Sub-Committee last Thursday, the questionnaires that the EU have sent as part of their assessment process of the UK’s equivalence framework amount to over 1000 pages of extremely technical questions, the last 250 pages of which only reached us at the end of May. My officials have been responding to these questions as quickly as possible and will return the remaining questionnaires by the end of this week.
