The analysis is expected to conclude the United Kingdom would be better off under the terms of Mrs May's agreement than it would in the event of a "no-deal" Brexit.

The GDP was just over 6% during the financial crisis, Bloomberg said.

Mr Carney said earlier in November that the impact of leaving the European Union with no transition period could be likened to the 1970s oil crisis.

Just over half of Britons (51%) said that staying in the European Union would be best for the economy.

Public support for Theresa May's Brexit deal has increased by a significant margin since it was first proposed - but it is still British people's least favourable option.

They are expected to use the next two weeks to argue there is no Commons majority for any of the alternative proposals being suggested in Westminster, meaning the prime minister's agreement is the only alternative to no-deal.

Downing Street has only said the Government would be releasing a "full reasoned position statement" laying its out political and legal position on the withdrawal agreement.

Shadow Brexit secretary Starmer told MPs he was "deeply concerned" that ministers meant to ignore the motion calling on them to publish the advice.
