Britain and the European Union hope to reach broad agreement by October so the national parliaments of the remaining countries can ratify a deal before Britain leaves. Steve Baker, a junior Brexit minister, resigned along with Davis.

Johnson said Britain was destined for a "semi Brexit" if the blueprint agreed by the Cabinet at Chequers on Friday is delivered.
Johnson, who favours a stronger break with the European Union, said in his resignation letter that Britain is "truly headed for the status of [EU] colony". They quit amid divisions in the government over Brexit.
