The government were "boxing themselves into a corner" in using the bill to specify the exact date and time of Brexit - 23:00 GMT on 29 March 2019 - he said, because the United Kingdom would be "hamstrung" if the negotiations needed to be extended at the last minute.

Speaking to a Westminster lunch, he said there remain "differences of view and perspective" within the Cabinet over Brexit, but insisted that everyone around the table knows that they need to show they are united behind the strategy set out by the PM.
