Labour will tomorrow attempt to force the Government to publish a series of investigations detailing the impact of Brexit on UK industries, amid reports that ministers are prepared to concede to demands for Parliament to get a meaningful vote on the final deal with the EU.
Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer is planning to use an “ancient” House of Commons procedure in tomorrow afternoon’s opposition day debate in an effort to trigger a “binding” vote that would require ministers to release the papers to Parliament.
Brexit Secretary to discuss release of Brexit impact reports amid mounting pressure on Government
David Davis is set to discuss the release of documents detailing the potential impact of leaving the EU on the UK economy with the chair of Parliament’s Brexit committee after a motion calling for them to be handed over to Parliament passed unopposed last night.
The Government has repeatedly dismissed previous appeals for the studies to be published, arguing that it risked undermining Britain’s position in negotiations with the EU.
