Greg Clark: no-deal Brexit would destroy 'thousands' of jobs

Thousands of jobs at risk in event of no-deal: Minister

Vaz asked the Leader of the Commons, Conservative MP Mel Stride: "Will the government explicitly rule out proroguing parliament to force a no-deal Brexit?".

"It's because prime ministers should only make promises they know they can deliver".

But he again refused to rule out such a radical step, even though former prime minister John Major and Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond have said they'd be prepared to take legal action to prevent that course of action.

Johnson and Hunt braced for the release of a grilling by the BBC's Andrew Neil as the Conservative leadership contest begins to draw to a close.

May underscored she had done all she possibly could to try to get her Brexit deal approved and did nothing to hide her frustration with the fact that some of her most strident opponents on Brexit are those now backing Johnson.

Boris Johnson is going to take a lot of positives from that U-turn.

In his interview with Mr Neil, Mr Johnson said the European Union will agree a Brexit deal this year without the backstop provision, predicting the European Union would instead negotiate the issue during post-Brexit free trade talks.

However he came under pressure for his comments over Britain's ambassador to the US Sir Kim Darroch in the row over the leak of his diplomatic dispatches.

However, the Tory leadership frontrunner denied failing to give Mr Darroch his backing and said his words during a televised leadership debate had been "misrepresented".

"He said that what somebody had relayed to him had been a factor in his resignation", Mr Johnson said. "There are other things - I think I probably actually should have done the TV debates".

Elsewhere, British Prime Minster Theresa May has said she will leave Number 10 with a mixture of pride and disappointment, as she admitted underestimating the "entrenched positions" in parliament over Brexit.

The HuffPost website and i newspaper reported that the chancellor has told colleagues that Speaker John Bercow, opposition MPs and Tory rebels might insist on continuing to debate in the chamber even if Johnson asks the Queen to suspend sittings by a mechanism known as prorogation.

According to the HuffPost, Hammond is looking to organise effectively a "sit in" to prevent the prime minister from locking it down.

In an interview with the BBC, the prime minister spoke of "frustration" at not seeing Brexit through and underestimating how "entrenched" MPs had become.

She said: "I think it'll be a mixture of pride at having done the job".

"Whilst I support numerous proposals and policies put forward by Hunt, we are not seeking an entrepreneur but a leader that will bring our party and country together". "I think the public have got a very simple view".

Nicola Lowery said it was important the next PM delivers a "collective vision" in parliament, and that Johnson was the man to do it. I will continue to argue vigorously against a no-deal Brexit.
