Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
UK Internal Market: White Paper
The following is an extract from the response to the statement made by the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on 16 July 2020.
I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. It is patently obvious that a Unionist and a nationalist cannot agree on a constitutional settlement, but it is none the less perfectly possible to have constructive conversations and good working relationships through proper channels. With that in mind, will he undertake to speak to his Cabinet colleagues to ensure that Lord Dunlop’s review is published?
My hon. Friend raises an important point. The review conducted by Lord Dunlop is, I understand, set to come to the Prime Minister in the autumn. I am sure that we will review it and look forward to it with some interest.

Letter of correction from the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the right hon. Member for Reading West (Alok Sharma):
An error has been identified in the response I gave to the hon. Member for Hazel Grove (Mr Wragg) on 16 July 2020.
The correct response should have been:
My hon. Friend raises an important point. The review conducted by Lord Dunlop was, I understand, received by the Prime Minister in the autumn. The Government will be responding in due course.
