David Davis says Brexit impact papers don’t actually exist

Brexit secretary says no economic impact studies were undertaken before the cabinet decision to leave the customs union and no assessment has been made of the possible economic effect of a no-deal Brexit. Hilary Benn, the Labour MP who chairs the Brexit committee, asks Davis if the government has carried out any forecasts on the possible impact of Brexit on the automotive, aerospace or financial services sectors. Davis replies: 'The answer’s going to be no to all of them.' Davis's comments have prompted calls in the House of Commons for the Speaker, John Bercow, to examine whether the Brexit secretary was in contempt of parliament for not handing over all the information he could • Sector-by-sector Brexit impact forecasts do not exist, says David Davis
