Davis defends Brexit after talks branded 'embarrassment'”

Labour's Brexit policy chief Keir Starmer said that if his party were in government it would start talks with the European Union in "a fundamentally different place".

The Brexit Secretary was responding to an urgent question raised by his Labour counterpart Keir Starmer.

But Brexit Secretary David Davis said Labour's policy on the customs union and single market had changed "10 times" in the past year.

"Because if the price of the Prime Minister's approach is the break-up of the union and reopening of bitter divides in Northern Ireland then the price is too high". But no ministers, shadow cabinet members or senior DUP figures were available.

He said the government had no intention of allowing "one part of the United Kingdom" to remain inside the single market and customs union when Britain leaves the EU.

"The Electoral Commission has today announced it has opened an investigation to establish whether Momentum, a registered non-party campaigner at the 2017 UK Parliamentary General Election, breached campaign finance rules in relation to spending", the commission said in a statement.

He told MPs the Government had always been clear that it wanted to protect "all elements" of the Good Friday Agreement to "maintain the common travel area and to protect associated rights".

For Labour, the only difficulty would be that while wanting to have the closest possible relationship with the EU's market and take on many of its regulations, it would also want to change some of the rules, such as state aid restrictions.

The U.K.'s opposition Labour Party called Brexit Secretary David Davis to answer questions from lawmakers following the collapse of divorce talks, with their spokesman Keir Starmer calling negotiations a national "embarrassment".
