The majority of MPs voted against requiring a report on the impact of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union on national finances including health spending.
MPs were considering the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill.
The proposed amendment rejected was:
- Amendment: 11, page 1, line 5, at end insert—
- “(3) Before exercising the power under subsection (1), the Prime Minister must prepare and publish a report on the effect of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU on national finances, including the impact on health spending.”
The amendment was accompanied by an explanatory note stating:
This amendment calls for the Government to publish a report on the effect of EU withdrawal on the national finances, particularly health spending following claims in the referendum campaign that EU withdrawal would allow an additional £350 million per week to be spent on the National Health Service.
The rejected amendment would have added an additional subclause at the end of clause one of the Bill.
