Amazon UK chief foresees 'civil unrest' for no-deal Brexit

Raab only took up the role on 9 July, after his predecessor David Davis quit in protest at May's plan for close economic ties with the EU.

"Both of us will be supported by the Cabinet Office Europe Unit and with this in mind the Europe Unit will have overall responsibility for the preparation and conduct of the negotiations, drawing upon support from DExEU and other departments as required".

British Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that from now on she will personally lead negotiations with the European Union on how the country should be separated from the bloc.

The newly appointed cabinet minister's reassuring words came during a grilling by the Brexit select committee, spearheaded by Hilary Benn.

May, however, said "DExEU will continue to lead on all of the government's preparations for Brexit", preparations that will include both a deal and a no-deal scenario.

Dominic Raab was interrupted by news of his own demotion today as he denied being sidelined by the Prime Minister seizing personal control of the Brexit talks.

Mr Davis has since argued that his ideas for keeping the Irish border open without locking the United Kingdom to European Union rules on goods - as the Chequers plan demands - were ignored.

He let slip details of the new arrangements in the Commons last week before Mrs May spelt out how the change will work in a written statement to MPs.

"Actually the fact Michel Barnier is not blowing it out the water but asking questions is a good positive sign - that's what we negotiate on", Mr Raab said.

"Those negotiations are going and that's what we're planning for", Raab told the BBC's Andrew Marr.

He added: "We will look at this issue in the round and make sure that there is adequate food supply".

Speaking to the BBC, Raab refused to deny reports the government is planning to stockpile food or use a section of motorway in England as a lorry park to deal with increased border checks if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal.

Mr Raab said the publication of the white paper will allow "maximum scrutiny" of the Government's plans by Parliament.
