Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab has resigned saying he “cannot in good conscience support” the UK’s draft Brexit agreement with the EU.
This comes less than 24 hours after cabinet members approved the agreement put forward by Prime Minister, Theresa May, after a five hour meeting.
It was understood tht several ministers however spoke against the document.
There are suggestions of moves among Conservative backbenchers to force a no-confidence vote in May.
Raab tweeted this morning: “Today, I have resigned as Brexit Secretary. I cannot in good conscience support the terms proposed for our deal with the EU. Here is my letter to the PM explaining my reasons, and my enduring respect for her.
