Commenting on reports that the government has given the DEXEU Select Committee Brexit sectoral analyses, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:
“It is right that the government has given these Brexit studies to MPs, but I am deeply concerned by reports they may not be complete and leave out key information on the damage Brexit will do to our economy and services. Not giving the full facts could be contempt of parliament.
“The Liberal Democrats want people to be given the facts, so they can decide what they think of the Conservatives’ Brexit deal, with the public having the right to exit from Brexit if it is a bad deal. The government shouldn’t be allowed to keep secret the damage their plans may do.”
