Fresh Brexit LEGAL THREAT: MEPs now demand David Davis release EU exit ‘damage papers’

13 Oct

Dr Scott Cato has already unsuccessfully attempted to force the Government to release the documents through freedom of information requests.

More than 120 MPs have also signed an open letter demanding that Mr Davis publish the findings, accusing the Government of keeping “not only parliament but the public in the dark”.

Jolyon Maugham QC, who runs the Good Law Project, said he believes there is a legal duty to publish studies into how Brexit will affect jobs and living standards.

He said: “It seems to me the Government’s reluctance to release these studies is born not of its ability to damage our negotiating position but what’s politically expedient.”
