How Brexit could impact 12 United Kingdom regions

By contrast, growth in London would fall by 3.5 per cent under the no deal scenario, by two per cent under the free trade scenario and by one per cent under the single market scenario.

Downing Street reacted Wednesday night saying the papers did not cover all outcomes.

Details of the analysis, contained in a government document leaked to the Buzzfeed News site and shown to MPs yesterday, are broadly in line with an economic study carried out by the Scottish government last month.

Instead a compromise was reached allowing some MPs to study the papers in private on a confidential basis.

The North East would take an 11% hit to economic growth under the Government's preferred outcome of a free trade deal with the European Union, while leaving with no deal will result in a 16% dip, and staying in the single market amounts to a 3% decline.

Following agreement on the Common Travel Area (CTA) in December 2017, Department officials were optimistic that we had avoided the worst-case scenario of disruption to the Irish health services post-Brexit, so long as the commitments are followed through.

The Guardian newspaper Wednesday night said their analysis showed a no-deal Brexit would blow 111 billion USA dollars hole in the public finances.

Paul Brannen said: "This is the type of news we always feared Brexit would bring".

"The final Brexit deal with the European Union must work for every region and nation of the United Kingdom, protecting people's jobs and local economies".

"It's time Theresa May stood up to the Brexit hardliners and started putting jobs and living standards first".

Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman Tom Brake said: 'This is a damning outlook for Britain. They are still keeping no deal on the table despite how crippling it would be to the regional economy.

At the Tory party's annual Black and White Ball in London, Mrs May told the assembled donors, celebrities and politicians: "Ever since the British people delivered their vote in the referendum, I have had no doubts about what our new relationship with the European Union must mean for the United Kingdom".

The Government has said the analysis doesn't "consider the outcome we are seeking in the negotiations", and insists that the forecasts are only preliminary.

A government spokesperson described the report as 'provisional internal analysis, part of a broad ongoing programme of analysis, ' with further work in progress.

"We are seeking an unprecedented, comprehensive and ambitious economic partnership - one that works for all parts of the UK". If we were a full member of the customs union, we would not be able to do trade deals around the rest of the world. Philip Hammond, chancellor, is expected to be among the ministers at the meeting arguing that only close regulatory alignment and a tight customs arrangement with the European Union can prevent a hard border in Ireland, an outcome the government has already promised to avoid. Jonathan Arnott, an Independent who formerly represented Ukip, said: "Actual recent empirical evidence suggests that we shouldn't believe a word of it. Let's look at the facts from recent Treasury predictions. We have shown that we can do that".
