Eurosceptic Tory MPs set out their Brexit red lines in letter to Theresa May ahead of crunch Cabinet summit

Eurosceptic MPs have set out their “red lines” for Brexit in a letter to Theresa May that makes clear what she must do to retain their loyalty.

The European Research Group of 62 Conservative Brexiteers, led by Jacob Rees-Mogg, insists that the UK must retain “full regulatory autonomy” after it leaves the EU and must be free to sign trade agreements with other countries during the transition period.

The letter, signed by four ex-Cabinet ministers and nine other former ministers, is the most public intervention to date by the ERG group, without whose support Mrs May is unable to govern.
