Backbenchers urge PM to publish David Davis’s rival white paper draft

Hardline Brexit MPs plan to force Theresa May to publish former Brexit Secretary, David Davis’s, white paper draft which she has previously discarded.

David Davis resigned from his position earlier this week on Sunday in light of Theresa May’s Chequers proposal which differed from his ideas.

His draft allegedly sets out a trade deal similar to Canada’s and includes other elements drawn from EU agreements and is due to be released this week.

Backbenchers plan to ask for a “humble address” in parliament in order to ask for Mr Davis’s draft to be made available to the public.
