United Kingdom government has no sector-by-sector studies on Brexit impact

"So the government hasn't undertaken any impact assessment on the implications of leaving the European Union for different sectors of the British economy?"

Mr Davis was quizzed by committee chairman Hilary Benn, who said: "Doesn't it strike you as rather odd that the Government undertakes impact assessments of all sorts of things all the time, but on the most fundamental change that we are facing as a country, you've just told us that the Government hasn't undertaken any impact assessments at all on the implications for various parts of the economy?"

He said the government had produced a "sectoral analysis" of different industries but not a "forecast" of what would happen when the United Kingdom leaves the EU.

David Davis has been accused of "misleading parliament" over the Brexit impact studies, after he repeatedly denied any had been carried out.

'There's no systematic impact assessment I'm aware of, ' Davis told the parliamentary committee.

50 injured after passenger train hits freight train in Germany
German federal police had earlier said only five people had suffered minor injured. "41 people have suffered minor injuries". According to the Meerbusch fire department, 155 people were on board the commuter train when it ran into the freight train.

"Ministers must now urgently undertake these impact assessments and ensure people are given the facts.

So the Government hasn't undertaken any impact assessments on the implications of leaving the European Union for different sectors of the British economy". "Without hindering our negotiating position and without compromising commercial confidentially or sensitivity". "I am not a fan of economic models because they have all proven wrong".

That echoed comments in early November from Robin Walker, a junior Dexeu minister, who tried to explain that the sectoral analysis was "not a series of 58 economic impact assessments". "As we are dealing with here [with a] free trade agreement or a WTO outcome, it's a paradigm change".

"One of the reasons for the concern about the city is that we need to protect the tax revenue base there, because it's very very large and those calculations will only be possible when we know what the range of options are, whether it's alignment... mutual recognition of a different sort or whether it's complete convergence".

Mr Davis's admission that no sectoral impact assessments have been made provoked outrage among opposition MPs.
