Brexit: Cabinet to meet amid pressure on May

  • UK Business

Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to update ministers on her Brexit strategy when she chairs a meeting of her cabinet this morning.

It comes after a weekend of speculation about her leadership and claims of a plot to oust her – something senior ministers have denied.

There have been suggestions that naming a date for her departure as PM could boost support for her Brexit deal.

But Downing Street has refused to be drawn on Mrs May’s future.

The Sun newspaper has used its front page to urge Mrs May to set a date for her resignation to win over reluctant Tories and the Democratic Unionist Party in order to bolster the chances of her withdrawal agreement passing in a third vote.

Her deal has been overwhelmingly rejected in the Commons twice, and it remains unclear whether she will bring it back a third time this week after she wrote to MPs saying she would only do so if there was “sufficient support”.

Conservative MP Nigel Evans told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that Mrs May should get her deal over the line, and then resign.

Mr Evans, a joint executive secretary of the influential 1922 Committee of backbench Tory MPs, added: “Clearly a number of people do not want the prime minister anywhere near the next phase of negotiations, which is the future trading negotiation between ourselves and the EU.”

International Trade Secretary Liam Fox told BBC Breakfast the government was “constrained by the fact that we have a leave electorate and a Parliament that leans towards remain and the government doesn’t have a majority in the House of Commons”.

“Changing the prime minister doesn’t change any of that basic arithmetic, we have to think our way through this problem,” he said.

“It’s simply not enough to say ‘if we throw the prime minister overboard things will be alright’, because it really won’t change anything.”

Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd said she was “still committed” to working with the prime minister to get her deal through and this was “the best way to end this chaos”.
