Britain's Conservative Party leadership candidate Boris Johnson during a visit to the port of Dover, southeast England, while on the campaign trail, Thursday July 11, 2019.

"The situation is we are leaving by the end of Oct but it would be so much better to get a deal".

Ms Rudd continued: "As we know, it isn't as straight forward as we would like it to be because the Prime Minister has tried on several occasions to do that".

"I had assumed mistakenly that the tough bit of the negotiation was with the European Union, that Parliament would accept the vote of the British people and just want to get it done, that people who'd spent their lives campaigning for Brexit would vote to get us out on March 29 and May 27", she told the Mail. Both of these can not be true.

Monmouth Assembly Member Nick Ramsay said: "I would also like to see more of a Conservative influence on the way money in Wales is spent but I think we need to respect the current settlement and work on building up that influence within the Assembly itself".

As she prepares to vacate 10 Downing Street, Prime Minister Theresa May appeared to take a dig at likely successor Boris Johnson.

Nicola Lowery said it was important the next PM delivers a "collective vision" in parliament, and that Johnson was the man to do it.

"I think that every person who considers the evidence that companies have given, whether it's in the automotive sector, whether it's in the food sector, whether it's in aerospace, whether it's in industries up and down the country..."

The news comes a day after Mr Hunt and Mr Johnson faced each other for a head-to-head debate on ITV.

Labour is poised to prevent any attempt at a no-deal Brexit, as are senior Tories including Justice Secretary David Gauke.

And she called for a more discipline in government after years of leaks and political disagreements inside her Cabinet: "Good government depends on collective responsibility".
