"It's not too late to save Brexit", Johnson tells United Kingdom parliament

  • EU referendum bill debate

Asked at an event in London this morning whether she had full confidence in the Chequers plan, Ms McVey said: 'I will say I have full confidence in the Prime Minister to deliver the Brexit that Britain has voted for'. One government minister said on condition of anonymity that the Conservatives had come to their senses and were backing her Brexit plan.

May was giving evidence to a parliamentary committee so was not in the chamber to hear Johnson's speech.

He added the prime minister's appeasement of the European Research Group of Tory eurosceptics had "changed the dynamic" and that he had initially planned to be supportive of Mrs May's Brexit proposals at the start of the week, before reversing his position.

In a joint statement on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry in the UK, Mike Thompson, chief executive of the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, and Steve Bates, chief executive of the BioIndustry Association, said that through the vote, parliament had sent a clear message that patients and public health should be a top priority for the government in these negotiations.

While the House of Commons debates these texts, the European Commission is analyzing the plan for future trade and customs relations it received from the United Kingdom government, the survival of which depends largely on the response from Brussels.

The prime minister secured her cabinet's backing for her Brexit plan at Chequers more than a week ago only to see two cabinet minister - Boris Johnson and David Davis - resign, and several junior ministers go, amid deep disagreements within the Conservatives over how closely the United Kingdom should remain aligned with the European Union after Brexit.

The 1990 Howe speech is widely credited with being one of the key events that brought down Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Johnson, who is seen as a potential challenger to May, warned that her plan would leave Britain in "miserable permanent limbo" and was "Brexit in name only".

But she was given a warning of the growing pressure she will face through the summer recess unless she abandons her Brexit policy, with Mr Johnson accusing the government of "dithering" and leading the country into a "fog of self-doubt".

The prime minister insisted she was confident Britain had enough time to negotiate a deal with the European Union before leaving in March next year.

"The DSRU believes that the overall aim should be to ensure that citizens of the United Kingdom and the European Union continue to gain access to the best and most innovative medicines", a spokesperson said.

"We have consistently voted to protect people's jobs, wages and standard of living by maintaining our place in the single market and the customs union, but if making it happen requires entering into an all-party government, so be it".

The Tory MP added that Theresa May is no longer "in charge" and called for the prime minister to reach out to form a "government of national unity", during an appearance on BBC Radio 4's Today programme this morning.
