Dear Department for International Trade,
Please will you publish the impact assessment that your department has made on the UK-Japan trade deal?
It has been widely reported that the deal is expected to produce a "boost of £1.5bn to the UK economy in the long term" - if you are unable to publish the impact assessment immediately, please will you publish by return of email or on your website:
1) Confirmation as to whether 'boost to the UK economy' refers to UK GDP.
2) the baseline year for this estimate of £1.5bn 'boost'
3) any range in estimate i.e. is £1.5bn the maximum or average in a range? What is the max, min and central estimates if a range has been calculated?
Many thanks for your time taken in this matter.
