Britain has not conducted a formal sector-by-sector analysis of the impact that leaving the European Union will have on the British economy, Brexit minister David Davis said on Wednesday, arguing that they were not necessary at the current time.

"There's no systematic impact assessment I'm aware of," Davis told a parliamentary committee, saying it would be more appropriate to conduct such analysis later in the negotiating process.
