The U.K. will suffer a major economic hit if Parliament rejects Theresa May’s Brexit deal and the country crashes out of the European Union with no new trade arrangements in place, according to official analysis.

A government report on Wednesday said GDP will be as much as 10.7 percent lower over 15 years if there’s no orderly exit and the supply of workers from the bloc dries up. The U.K. will be poorer under all exit options modeled in the study.
