United Kingdom government to publish detailed Brexit plan as May faces Eurosceptic backlash

Raab is new Brexit minister

"It delivers on the vote that people gave on Brexit, it delivers the fact that we will have an end to free movement, we will have an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in the United Kingdom, we won't be sending vast contributions to the EU every year, we'll be out of the Common Agricultural Policy, out of the Common Fisheries Policy", she said. The new Brexit secretary has branded Brexit both a "challenge" and "opportunity" for the United Kingdom, in a foreword to a long-awaited White Paper on Britain's future relationship with the European Union once it leaves the bloc.

"For those that are either criticising or carping or whatever else, they need to come back with credible alternatives".

Within the foreword of the proposed White Paper, Mr Raab is expected to say: "Technological revolutions and scientific transformations are driving major changes in the global economy". The cold realities of business opportunities, and not historic nostalgia, will decide India's future engagements with the UK.

Speaker John Bercow said MPs were unhappy that the White Paper had not yet been made available.

Meanwhile, Brussels may well reject the plan outright because it is trying to cherry-pick special access to the single market with a special carve out on the free flow of goods.

The four amendments to the customs bill were put down a day before Thursday's publication of a white paper policy document giving details of the prime minister's plans.

Tánaiste Simon Coveney has said it has been a good week for the Brexit process despite the resignations that followed the publication of Theresa May's Chequers proposals.

The stolen documents themselves are not classified, but could still pose a security threat if they fell into the wrong hands. It is unclear, however, if any of the data was copied or shared. "He was attempting to get rid of it as soon as possible".

Downing Street has turned down the request as the fallout from Friday's summit rolls on.

He said: "You are going to have very, very lively debates in a situation like this".

Despite chancellor Philip Hammond having made an impassioned speech defending mutual recognition and rejecting equivalence as a land grab in which the European Union could have final say on access just three weeks ago, the government is now proposing "expanded" equivalence to underpin financial services.

A north-east Conservative MP has predicted that his party will be "screwed" at the next United Kingdom election unless Theresa May changes her new Brexit proposals.

Mrs May's brand-new Brexit strategy has caused rumblings within pro-leave groups.

Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who said in his resignation that Britain is headed for the "status of colony", has always favoured a "hard Brexit", whereby the United Kingdom would cut all ties with the EU. It was seen as one of the biggest political shake ups in recent memory.
