Thank you for contacting me about the analyses which have been carried out on the UK's withdrawal from the EU.
My ministerial colleagues at the Department for Exiting the EU and across Government are working to ensure that the referendum result is delivered and that the UK's exit from the EU is a success. As part of its work, the Government has analysed 58 sectors, as defined by the Office for National Statistics. A list of these has now been published.
It is important to understand, however, that the sectoral analysis is not a series of 58 discrete impact assessments. It is instead a mixture of qualitative and quantitative analysis that is contained in a number of different documents. The analysis ranges from general analysis to detail on specific product lines. It has never been a series of impact assessments on the quantitative impact of exiting the EU.
Parliament has previously voted that the Government should not publish anything that might undermine the country's negotiating position or that is not in the public interest. There may also be confidential or commercially sensitive information, provided to the Government in confidence, which should remain private. The Government has to balance this with providing, in the interests of transparency, as much information as possible.
In line with this the Government has committed to releasing additional information to the DEXEU Select Committee to assist it in its work.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
