European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill — New Clause 5 — Impact Assessments — 7 Feb 2017 at 21:00

The majority of MPs voted against making the publication of any impact assessment, prepared since 23 June 2016, on the UK's future trading relationship with the EU a prerequisite for the Prime Minister giving notification of the UK's intent to withdraw from the EU.

MPs were considering the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill[1].

The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled Impact Assessments and stated:

  • ‘(1) The Prime Minster may not give notice under section 1 until either—
  • (a) HM Treasury has published any impact assessment it has conducted since 23 June 2016 on the United Kingdom’s future trading relationship with the European Union, or,
  • (b) HM Treasury has laid a statement before both Houses of Parliament declaring that no such assessment has been conducted since 23 June 2016.’

The rejected new clause was accompanied by the following explanatory statement:

  • This new clause requires the Government to publish any recently conducted Treasury impact assessments of different trading models with the European Union.
