Brexit debate: Soubry says PM putting Tory interests first

The prime minister said she has been working in the national interests, after a former Tory MP accused her of putting party interest first.

Anna Soubry, a member of the new Independent Group of MPs, said some ministers and senior backbenchers had spoken of resigning after being prepared to break a three-line whip to make sure a no-deal Brexit was taken off the table.

She asked Mrs May to confirm that “nothing has changed, and no deal remains firmly on the table”.
