Dominic Raab is making a statement on the white paper in parliament

  • Now is the time for the EU to respond in kind
  • There should be a firm commitment in the withdrawal agreement that the future relationship deal with the EU should be signed as soon as possible

It's a real mess at the Commons. The session was suspended temporarily as the white paper was shared with journalists and reporters before it even reached the hands of MPs.

They're now debating about protocol and how Raab has come to know about the details of the white paper given his absence at Chequers last Friday. Oh dear, this is really turning into quite a scene.
