Nicky Morgan chair of the Treasury Committee, has written to Sir Tom Scholar, permanent secretary of the Treasury, and Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England, to request "up-to-date and rigorous analysis" of the economic impacts of the current key scenarios for the UK’s future economic relationship with the EU.

She said the last analysis produced at the Committee's request "will be almost a year old on the 31 October Brexit deadline.

“As the committee requested prior to the first meaningful vote, we have asked HM Treasury and the Bank of England to, where necessary, provide updated analysis of the economic impacts of the key scenarios for the UK’s future economic relationship with the EU.

“This will ensure that parliament is as informed as possible as it considers key decisions about the future of our country".
