||<p>As the Chancellor has said, a UK exit from the EU would be a long, costly and messy
divorce. The finance Ministers and central bank governors of the G20 concluded at
the weekend that a British exit would cause an economic shock not just to the UK but
to Europe and the world. What people are asking for in this referendum campaign is
a serious, sober and principled assessment from the Government setting out the facts.
The Treasury will publish a comprehensive analysis of our membership of a reformed
EU and the alternatives, including the long-term economic costs and benefits of EU
membership and the risks associated with an exit before 23 June.</p>
