Senior minister warns Theresa May not to ignore ‘softer’ Brexit

Correspondent

A senior Conservative minister has warned Theresa May that if Parliament wants to support a ‘softer’ Brexit – she can’t afford to ignore it.

The Justice Secretary David Gauke said there were no ideal choices – as MPs prepare to hold a second round of indicative votes tomorrow on alternative options.

The shape of Britain’s future relations with Europe is already affecting millions of EU citizens who must now apply for a new ‘settled status’ scheme if they want to live here.
