UKGOV Brexit report released, including Scottish impact

The actual document containing the Government’s Brexit analysis has just been released.

It confirms what we have written about before and what was recently leaked to the press. All forms of Brexit will hurt the Scottish economy. I uploaded the whole document here.

Below is a screenshot of the pertinent part regarding Scotland. It details the economic hit we will experience in the three likely Brexit scenarios. Some have argued that this document does not take into account the super-duper bespoke pie-in-the-sky deal that Theresa May is going to negotiate. However, we know this deal isn’t possible. Looking at the EU negotiating guidelines, a Canada style FTA is the most likely scenario if both sides stick to their red lines.

A Canada type deal would see the Scottish economy grow 6 percent slower over a 15 year period according to the report. A Norway type deal, which the UK Government has ruled out, would limit the damage to two percent. And a no-deal Brexit would take the figure up to ten percent.

Parliament has finally released the full UKGOV Brexit report, which confirms the harsh impact that leaving the EU will have on the Scottish economy.
