Philip Hammond Backs Legal Action to Stop U.K. PM Suspending Parliament

Clark said that a no-deal Brexit would be "enormously damaging" for the United Kingdom and said he would do everything in his power to persuade his colleagues in government to prevent it from happening and to get a good deal.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May leaves 10 Downing Street for her weekly Prime Minister's Questions at the House of Commons in London, Wednesday, July 10, 2019. Parliament won. King Charles I was tried and executed.

Such a move would provoke a constitutional crisis because Parliament is "dead-set against" a no-deal Brexit, Hammond said on Bloomberg TV on Friday.

Amber Rudd said she has "accepted" the possibility of a no-deal Brexit, despite having previously fiercely opposed it.

Major's comments follow a televised debate between Johnson and Jeremy Hunt, the two men seeking to replace Theresa May as Conservative leader and prime minister.

United Kingdom police to investigate leak of ambassador's memos
The White House responded by refusing to deal with him, and Trump branded the ambassador a "pompous fool" in a Twitter fusillade. In his statement, Basu urged the person or people who leaked the memos to turn themselves in.

Monmouth Assembly Member Nick Ramsay said: "I would also like to see more of a Conservative influence on the way money in Wales is spent but I think we need to respect the current settlement and work on building up that influence within the Assembly itself".

The next prime minister of the United Kingdom will be selected by 160,000 Conservative party members, who will vote for a successor to Theresa May.

"I think that every person who considers the evidence that companies have given, whether it's in the automotive sector, whether it's in the food sector, whether it's in aerospace, whether it's in industries up and down the country..."

The Foreign Secretary told how he envisaged negotiating a revamped divorce deal by the end of September and said he would allow "a few extra days" beyond the EU's October 31 deadline to give Parliament time to approve the deal, if required.

May did not reveal whether she backs Jeremy Hunt or Boris Johnson as her replacement, saying only that "they understand the responsibility that this job brings". Political commentators have described it as the "nuclear option" to force through a no-deal Brexit if Brussels rejects a deal for Britain's withdrawal from the European Union. "It needs to return".
