Doughty – Government’s own Brexit analysis shows we will all be worse off if it takes place

The Exiting the European Union Committee has today published the Government’s Brexit impact analysis.

Commenting, Stephen Doughty MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said: 

“The Government have tried to hide the truth from the people about the cost of Brexit for months, but Parliament has asserted its sovereign rights and forced publication.

“There can be no more denial from Ministers about the true costs and risks of Brexit. It is the Government’s own assessment that has now been published and all their Brexit scenarios have one thing in common: we will all be worse off if Brexit takes place.

“With the costs and risks of Brexit becoming clearer all the time, we are all entitle to keep an open mind about whether Brexit is the right choice for our country.”
