Lincolnshire County Council refuses to release its latest impact assessments ahead of Brexit after freedom of information request from John Bland of the European Movement
Lincolnshire County Council has refused to release its latest impact assessments ahead of Brexit, claiming it would have a “chilling effect”.
A response to an FOI request from John Bland, chairman of the Lincolnshire branch of the European Movement, said that releasing the information would “inhibit officers from providing free and frank advice”.
However, they say the council has carried out a risk assessment in the event of a no-deal Brexit and has been told by the Lincolnshire Resilience Form that the county is at “low risk”.
