    The government has not carried out an impact assessment of leaving the EU on the UK economy, Brexit Secretary David Davis has told MPs.

    “There’s no sort of systematic impact assessment,” Mr Davis told the Brexit committee.

    He said the government had produced a “sectoral analysis” of different industries but not a “forecast” of what would happen when the UK leaves the EU.

    There has been a long-running row over the government’s Brexit studies.
