Minister quits after PM opens possibility of Brexit delay

Political Editor

The Agriculture Minister, George Eustice, has quit the government over Theresa May’s promise to allow the Commons a vote on delaying Brexit – if her deal is rejected.

He said he would vote for the Prime Minister’s deal next month, but feared a decision to delay Brexit would hand control to the EU and be the “final humiliation” of the country.
