Minister Phillip Lee quits over Brexit strategy

The government has suffered its first resignation over Brexit, with Justice Minister Phillip Lee calling for a change in strategy.

Lee warned the current approach would damage businesses in his Bracknell constituency, according to his statement.

He accused the government of trying to “limit” Parliament’s role and called for another referendum once ministers’ chosen path becomes clear.

It comes ahead of a series of votes on the government’s EU Withdrawal Bill
