Ahead of this afternoon's publication of the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill 2016-17 Helen pressed the Government on when MPs will be able to consider the value of existing EU agencies and the cost of setting up replacement Britiish agencies.

"The Secretary of State has repeatedly said that he can maintain flexibility and give the House a say through the great repeal Bill, but that only covers things in legislation. When will the House be able to consider the value of the EU agencies and the cost of setting up new UK ones?"

The Minister was unable to provide a timescale for this important discussion.
