Gina Miller has called on the Government to release 50 secret reports detailing the effects of Brexit on different sectors of the British economy and the Government’s legal position on the revocability of Article 50 to all MPs. But if you think for some reason somebody elected rather than a business person should making such demands, last week 120 MPs wrote to the Brexit Secretary David Davis demanding he publish the secret 50 reports with their advice on the effects of Brexit, accusing of him of keeping not only Parliament but the public in the dark. And Green party MEP Molly Scott Cato and the Good Law Project have instructed lawyers to challenge the refusal of the government to release the reports in the High Court.
At the same time the CBI, the British Chambers of Commerce, the Institute of Directors, the manufacturers' group EEF and the Federation of Small Businesses are about to send a strongly worded letter to David Davis to demanded an urgent agreement on transition arrangements to give businesses the certainty and time they need to prepare for a new UK-EU economic partnership. They say an agreement on a transition is needed as soon as possible, as companies are preparing to make serious decisions at the start of 2018, which will have consequences for jobs and investment in the UK. This comes when Davis is reported to be about to present an "upbeat assessment" of a no-deal Brexit to Cabinet but is refusing to release the secret reports on how that would affect the British economy.
