The U.K. government is preparing to show a panel of lawmakers secret papers detailing the economic impact of Brexit, but wants to keep the information out of the public gaze.

On Wednesday, Parliament passed a motion calling on the government to release its internal research into the impact of leaving the European Union on 58 sectors of the British economy. Theresa May’s team is now working on how to disclose the documents, Brexit minister Martin Callanan said.
