Theresa May is to chair a meeting of her cabinet at Chequers to discuss the UK’s approach to leaving the EU and its objectives in future negotiations.

The prime minister and senior ministers will gather together to debate the way forward amid reports of tensions and diverging priorities among key figures.

Those present will include David Davis, Boris Johnson and Liam Fox, each of whose departments is focused on Brexit.

Mrs May has said talks with the rest of the EU will not begin this year. She had asked every Cabinet minister before the summer break to identify what were described as the “opportunities” for their departments and she will now expect them to report back.
