  • May.24.2018: Secret Brexit report in hands of council lawyers in Birmingham. A mystery report into the effects of Brexit on Birmingham - which has twice been blocked from being publicly released - is now being considered by council lawyers. But the release of the report may not be in the public interest, the city council has stated. Authority lawyers are currently weighing up whether publishing the secret document, which was produced around two years ago before the referendum, would be 'prejudice to the effective conduct of public affairs'. Birmingham City Council has already blocked publication of the report twice. Its release was stopped prior to the referendum to avoid influencing the historic public vote in 2016. The authority also denied a Freedom of Information request from the Local Democracy Reporting Service (LDRS) earlier this month stating the report never made it past draft stage and was never signed off.
