Dear Department for Exiting the European Union,
As we move ever closer to leaving the European Union and there are, according to various Ministerial speeches, only three options Left (May's deal, no deal or no Brexit), I would like to request any existing or updated studies or forecasts on the impacts on jobs (gains/losses) and profits (increase or decrease) for the food sectors and automotive sectors covering the East Midlands (Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Northamptonshire) and Nationally of these three options. I am seeking information on food sector impacts that relate to primary production, processing, logistics and retail specifically as well as generally, and for automotive on general studies as well as cross-border movements of components and impacts (e.g., potential tariffs).
If impact studies have not been done I would like to know why and on what grounds major decisions impacting livelihoods are being made without good research and who authorised any studies or absence of studies.
