Brexit updates LIVE: Boris Johnson begins Commons struggle to push through his deal this week

Robert Jenrick, secretary of state for housing, communities and local government, says that he believes MPs who “really want to deliver” on the Brexit referendum will back the PM’s deal. 

Speaking to Sky, he said there will be a “long national debate” about the future relationship, if the withdrawal agreement is passed.

Asked about the speed at wish the Government wants to move on, he says a lot of the issues within the withdrawal agreement bill are things which politicians are “very familiar with”.  

He said:

Those MPs who want to pour over the details will have the time to do so but the vast majority of MPs I think know where they stand on this issue.

It’s a fundamental question really, do you want to deliver Brexit? Do you want the country to move forward? If you do, then get on and deliver this.
