Monday night’s debate was on Brexit and foreign affairs – below are highlights of the best speeches and interventions

 

Secretary for Exiting the European Union David Davis: ‘We are doing nothing less than refashioning Britain’s place in the world’

David Davis: ‘Ending free movement means leaving Single Market’

David Davis: ‘But it does not mean losing access to that market’

Bill Cash: Do they really want the UK indefinitely to remain part of an undemocratic system governed behind closed doors?’

Shadow Secretary for Exiting the European Union Sir Keir Starmer: ‘The referendum vote was a vote on the state of the nation’

Iain Duncan Smith: ‘Can you clarify Labour’s Brexit policy?’

Suella Fernandes: ‘Brexit is an opportunity to grasp, not a crisis to manage!’

Nadhim Zahawi asks for some balance on ‘no deal’ – Keir Starmer admits it would be bad for the EU27 if they don’t get a deal with the UK

Summing up, Boris Johnson says there’s far more that unites both sides of the House than divides them
