Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including David Davis’s Commons statement on Brexit and Boris Johnson taking Foreign Office questions
David Jones, the Conservative former Brexit minister, asks if the government will consider alternative options if the EU refuses to discuss trade talks.
Davis says he expects the EU to do what is in their interests. That involves having a deal. So that is what he expects to happen, he says.
Labour’s Heidi Alexander asks if the UK will seek to remain a member of EU regulatory bodies after Brexit.
Davis says control of these issues will come back to the UK. Then there will be a procedure to manage convergence, he says.
