SCOTTISH ministers still haven’t had any information from the UK Government about the impact of Brexit on Scotland – despite promises made by David Mundell and David Davies last month.

Responding to a freedom of information request, the Scottish Government confirmed to The National “that the UK Government has not provided to the Scottish Government any economic modelling of the impact on either Scotland or the UK as a whole”.

On October 24, Scottish Secretary David Mundell told members of Westminster’s Scottish Affairs committee that Brexit impact analysis “would be shared between governments.”

That was confirmed the next day when Brexit Secretary David Davis pledged to share Scottish impact analysis with his counterparts in Edinburgh.

Then, on November 1, Michael Russell wrote to Mundell asking again to see the sectorial analysis on which his department had worked.

But three weeks later, the Scotland Office still hasn’t shared anything with the government in Edinburgh.

The Scottish minister’s letter followed an embarrassing defeat for the government in Parliament, when opposition parties and Tory rebels used an antiquated House of Commons procedure to effectively force ministers hand, obliging them to release the analysis to MPs on the Committee for Exiting the EU.

That still hasn’t happened.

Rumours that the government’s Brexit department had carried out impact assessments, and that they showed Scotland and the north of England being hurt most by leaving the EU, were first aired by Davis’s former chief of staff, James Chapman.

It was only at the end of October that the government released the list of the 58 sectors covered. Then, at the start of November, Brexit Minister Steve Baker seemed to suggest the separate documents did not exist at all.

Freedom of information requests to UK Government departments asking for details of the analysis have been rejected, with civil servants saying releasing data could affect Britain’s Brexit negotiations with Brussels.

Earlier this month Pete Wishart, the SNP MP and shadow leader of the House of Commons, used a point of order in Parliament to call for the Tory government to be held in contempt of parliament for its refusal to publish Brexit scrutiny.

Speaking at the time he said: “The UK Government has for weeks and months since the EU referendum sought out every avenue, procedure and tactic to avoid even an atom of parliamentary scrutiny over its plans to leave the EU.

“The government’s latest attempt to simply outline a vague date in the distant future, and then to hide behind the recess period, is nothing short of a government holding this parliament in contempt.

“The Tory government’s delay in publication of its impact assessment papers – and its statement of intent rather than providing absolute certainty – contravenes the requirements of the motion and the will of this parliament, and therefore represents a contempt as it obstructs and impedes our ability to carry out duties.

“In just a matter of weeks the Tory government has gone from confirming the Brexit papers exist, to then denying they exist”.
