To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, how many non-disclosure agreements have been signed by (a) companies, (b) organisations and (c) individuals in relation to the Government's preparations for the UK leaving the EU without deal.

Answer (Chris Heaton-Harris)

We continue to engage with a wide range of businesses to understand their priorities and issues as we leave the European Union, both to inform our negotiating position, and our preparations in the unlikely event of there being no deal.

The Government has non-disclosure agreements with some private sector organisations. Confidentiality requirements are a common component of contractual obligations and are used by the Department to protect commercial considerations as well as negotiation sensitivities.
