Brexit ministers haven’t even read government’s impact assessments

by Steve Beasant on 26 October, 2017

Brexit Ministers Steve Baker MP and Robin Walker MP today admitted at a select committee hearing that they haven’t even read the Government’s own Brexit impact assessments.

Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake commented:

“It seems we now have blind Brexiteers leading the blind.

“How can ministers make informed decisions on Brexit when they can’t even be bothered to read the government’s own impact assessments?

“If ministers won’t read these reports, they should publish them so the public can.

“People have a right to know what an extreme Brexit will mean for their jobs, living standards and communities.”
