Prime Minister Theresa May has called for crisis talks with her Cabinet as her Chequers plan loses support.
It has been reported that Mrs May told cabinet ministers on Friday morning to be prepared to meet on September 13 to work out a plan for critical areas not yet covered by disaster plans.
The meeting comes as Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, launched an attack of Chancellor Philip Hammond’s economic forecasts about a no deal Brexit.
In an interview with the Sunday Times the Brexit Secretary said that some projections needed to be treated with ‘a measure of caution’. Mr Raab stressed that these projections have been incorrect in the past and adding that GDP estimates for 2019 ‘have been revised up.
There is growing concern amongst Tory MPs that the Chequers plan is unable to deliver the will of the British people; especially given the common rule book and the influence of the European Court of Justice.
