Economic assessment of the prime minister's Brexit deal

Her Majesty's Treasury did not have the information requested.

Dear Her Majesty's Treasury,

Please provide an assessment of the economic effects on the United Kingdom of leaving the European Union under the terms of the deal negotiated on October 17 2019.

If available, please provide a comparison with the economic situation under the deal negotiated under Theresa May, and that if the United Kingdom remained in the European Union.

Yours faithfully,

T Sanderson

Dear HM Treasury,

You have written that my request is overly broad, and that it would not be possible within three and a half days of work to uncover whether the Treasury has made an economic assessment of the effects of leaving the EU under the terms negotiated by the prime minister. You suggest that I limit the scope of my inquiry.

It is surprising and alarming to learn that it is difficult for your officials to know whether such an assessment is available within HM Treasury, as such a document would seem essential for any long-term economic planning.

I will circumscribe the terms of my request as much as possible:

* Has at least one estimate been made by HM Treasury during 2019 of the numerical effect on UK GDP of leaving the European Union under a free trade agreement, as compared to current trade arrangements?
* If so, please provide at least one such assessment.

I would observe that if it is not possible to identify one such assessment within three days this would raise significant concerns about planning work at HM Treasury.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Yours sincerely,

T Sanderson
