Birmingham City Council commissioned an independent report to give the best possible indication of what leaving the EU could mean for the city and region.
It was published yesterday

Here are the key points:
The report highlights issues and concerns in the following key areas: trade; infrastructure and investment; ‘just in time’ impacts; employment; productivity and skills; business adaptability; EU funding; economic and financial; security; data sharing; public services.
Automotive sector is of particular concern... given that only 40% of components are sourced locally, making it vulnerable to supply interruptions & delays
Essential that the city and region has formal input into future trade negotiations in order to support the local economy
The loss of EU funding streams will be another loss to local government funding, with a major funding gap opening up immediately after leaving, unless a replacement aid fund is proposed

As an interim measure to offset the impact of losing EU funding, the Core Cities proposals for the Shared Prosperity Fund will need to be adopted in full to avoid a loss of delivery capacity

Regardless of the final form of disengagement, the impact on affordable housing, and the public sector workforce, shared services and the environment, are likely to be significant and profound.

Just a reminder that Birmingham City Council have had to deliver some very deep cuts thanks to the Tory austerity policy and our public services are already on their knees #SaveBrum
A Brexit analysis that the Government tried to keep secret predicted that the West Midlands economy will shrink by up to 13% with NoDeal and 8% even if there is a comprehensive trade deal.

Under our current deal, WM gets more than average EU funding
"Over a 6-year period, the West Midlands received £239.5 million in European Social Fund grants and £315.9 million in European Regional Development Fund grants"
