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.

Full Fact wants to see greater accountability for public figures who mislead us—and we need your help.
Political debate in the UK is in flux right now. The UK’s exit from the European Union is approaching, we will soon have a new prime minister and potentially a general election.
We want politicians to tell the truth, and while the best politicians realise that their work should be done honestly, some aren't taking their responsibilities seriously. Both sides in the EU referendum campaign let voters down, from deceptively designed leaflets to some of the arguments made on each side. The public rightly expects more from politicians.
We want to see greater accountability for public figures who mislead. Full Fact will continue to advocate for higher standards and call out those who don't uphold them.
But we rely on the generosity of our supporters to make sure we can spot the most harmful misinformation when we most need to.
