Tory leadership contest would be 'catastrophic' for Brexit talks, David Davis says

He insisted that the United Kingdom now had a "very good Prime Minister" and that the country needed a "stable backdrop" as it attempted to secure an European Union exit deal during the crucial talks with Brussels.

Davis said before the talks began that he is determined to reach a Brexit deal "that works for the whole of the United Kingdom".

SNP figures have suggested they could trade their support for the Repeal Bill at Holyrood and Westminster for a place at Brexit negotiations for the Scottish Government, a demand that has so far been rejected by United Kingdom ministers. "I didn't design the campaign, I thought we'd get a better result than you did".

On an appearance on the Andrew Marr Show on BBC One, David Davis, the Brexit secretary, hinted at the policy, stating that only those who had "committed a crime or [present] some sort of security problem" would be deported.

The prime minister is set to present plans to grant three million European Union citizens living in the United Kingdom "settled status", as long as British ex-pats are given the same deal, as Brexit negotiations continue.

'I know she is coming under a lot of pressure at the moment, but I have seen her in action'.

Finally, Davis admitted he had advised May to push ahead with the early election: "Yes, I take my share of the blame on it along with the 23 members of the cabinet who also said it was a good idea".

Another of Mr Hammond's former cabinet colleagues told the paper that the chancellor had said he was ready to lead: "He told me that if Theresa May could be prime minister, so could he". 'I'm sure there will be a deal, whether it's the deal I want, which is a free trade agreement, the customs agreement, and so on, I'm pretty sure, but I'm not certain'.

Davis also suggested a transitional period of one or two years after Brexit negotiations conclude was more likely than the four years called for by the chancellor.

She faces her first major test next week when MPs vote on her legislative agenda, traditionally seen as a test of confidence in the government.

"We can not have a circumstance where the other side says that they are going to punish you".

Labour's shadow attorney general Shami Chakrabarti also told Sophy Ridge her party is "absolutely clear" the economy has to be prioritised during Brexit by maintaining tariff-free access to the EU's Single Market.

'What we want is to be able to have fair migration that avoids people's jobs being undercut'.

The Brexit Secretary quashed talk of a change in the Conservative party leadership and said any colleagues who were considering a challenge to Theresa May should "stop being so self-indulgent". "I never said it was a breeze".
