To ask Her Majesty's Government whether any department provided advice in the period up to and including 31 January 2020 noting a possible shortage of HGV drivers after the UK’s departure from the EU; and if so, whether they will deposit all internal Government correspondence that relates to this matter in the House of Lords library.

The shortage of HGV drivers is longstanding and predates the decision of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

Publishing all government advice on this issue could not be done without incurring disproportionate costs.
