Health leaders consider stockpiling drugs in case of no-deal Brexit

British voters EU

"One of the things I've done in different parts of government is make sure that it's more tech savvy and digital", he said, speaking with BBC's current affairs programme Newsbeat.

On Sunday sugar maker Tate & Lyle, which backed Brexit, said the Prime Minister's white paper was confusing.

Earlier, Mr. Raab suggested to the Sunday Telegraph that he was still persuading other cabinet ministers that the government's "pragmatic" strategy for leaving the European Union was the "best plan" and that the United Kingdom could refuse to pay its so-called divorce bill, a payment from the United Kingdom to the European Union estimated to be about £39bn, if it does not get a trade deal.

The Foreign Secretary said "the only person rejoicing" from a no-deal Brexit would be Mr Putin.

His comments strike a different tone from predecessor Boris Johnson - who said a Brexit on World Trade Organisation terms "doesn't hold terrors" - and came despite Theresa May's insistence that "no deal is better than a bad deal".

"DExEU will continue to lead on all of the Government's preparations for Brexit: domestic preparations in both a deal and a no-deal scenario, all of the necessary legislation, and preparations for the negotiations to implement the detail of the Future Framework. Frankly, it would not make us a credible partner for future worldwide agreements".

"We know DExEU is a huge waste of money". I'm confident we won't get there. "But while there is reference to GP workload, we would have liked more explicit emphasis on Mr Hancock's plans for increasing the number of "real" Global Positioning System providing frontline care to patients".

"A referendum isn't an easy option, but it's not one at this stage that I would rule out".

Half of the voters would support the UK's stay in the European Union if there was a second referendum.

Prime Minister Theresa May is trying to grapple with continuing Cabinet tensions over Brexit strategy as her top team of ministers meet for a special session in Gateshead on Monday.

Mr Davis, who quit as Brexit secretary in protest at the Chequers agreement, said the PM needed to "start again" on withdrawal plans. In March the Prime Minister promised to correct the mistakes of previous Governments by putting an end to "siloed" working and integrating health and social care so that demands on the NHS are better managed.

"When it comes to Brexit there is now a very real risk of a Brexit no-deal by accident", he told a news conference alongside his German counterpart Heiko Maas.

He added that the prospect of people being removed from the United Kingdom was "far-fetched and fanciful" and said it would be "frankly irrational" for the European Union to go for the "worst case scenario" of no deal.
