British authorities have not assessed what impact Britain leaving the European Union (Brexit) might have on individual industries in the country.

The issue was discussed on the BBC's Wake Up to Money radio-show last week. David Davis, Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, was quoted admitting that no Brexit impact assessment had taken place.

Thora Helgadottir Frost, economic advisor at GAMMA Capital Management in London, was among the radio show's guests. She previously served as a senior economist at the Office for Budget Responsibility in London and is familiar with the British economy. Frost said it was surprising, given that the British authorities had for some time know it was planning to leave the EU, that such an assessment had not been done. She also said that the British government should use economic models as tools to give insight into probable future developments.

Other guests agreed with Frost. There was also a discussion about the possible outcome in the ongoing Brexit negotiations and the situation emerging once they have been concluded.
