What does leaving the EU mean for the UK?

Published: 7th Jul 2016

The House of Commons Library published a briefing ‘EU referendum: impact of an EU exit in key UK policy areas’ before the referendum on what might happen to major policy areas if the UK voted to leave.

Here we present that briefing combined with our own work on what we currently know now the UK has voted to leave.

We will periodically update these articles as events develop, and will be adding new sections.
