British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is having a torrid time steering the Brexit ship towards its goal, will preside over a cabinet meeting in North-east England this summer to mobilise public support for her Chequers Brexit plan, which has been widely criticised and even rocked her own Conservative Party.

The former health secretary said: "I will... be clear that our European partners must show much more flexibility and creativity in negotiations if we are to avoid a "no deal by accident" scenario".

"So it reconciles, I hope, those ambitions but it also takes into account our experience of the negotiations to date, so it is a far advanced offer".

Dominic Raab has insisted he will not "wallow in pessimism" about the Brexit process as Eurosceptics voiced concerns his department was being sidelined by Number 10.

Officials working on the negotiations will be brought together in the Cabinet Office Europe Unit headed by Mr Robbins - who reports direct to the Prime Minister - while Mr Raab's Department for Exiting the European Union will focus on preparations for life after Brexit.

Also in the session, Robbins revealed that teams from the Cabinet Office Europe Unit as well as from the Treasury, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and the Department for International Trade, have been working together to achieve "as frictionless trade as possible between the United Kingdom and the European Union".

Mr Hunt signalled a change in rhetoric when he visited Germany on Monday, warning that only Russian President Vladimir Putin would welcome a no-deal Brexit.

Asked whether he would be "calling the shots" in his new job, the Brexit Secretary told the House of Commons last week: "No, it is the Prime Minister and the Cabinet".

Some worldwide businesses have stepped up planning for a so-called "no deal" though they admit there is little clarity about what such a scenario would look like.

"Still, now that Theresa May has taken "personal control" of Brexit away from the Brexiteers, perhaps a positive outcome is possible", said the commentary.

He again refused to deny the plans, saying: "If we have no deal, we want to make sure we're prepared at the border for the knock-on effects".

Analysts said that this could increase chances of a softer Brexit and thus help support the pound in the near term.

"We need a people's vote with the option to stay in the European Union".

On Sunday sugar maker Tate & Lyle, which backed Brexit, said the Prime Minister's white paper was confusing.

"We are continuing to prepare the legislation needed to implement the withdrawal agreement in United Kingdom law and we will publish a white paper tomorrow setting out more details on this", Martin Callanan told the upper house of Britain's parliament.

The UK could refuse to pay its £39 billion divorce bill to Brussels if it does not get a trade deal, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab has signalled. Sir Amyas Morse, the auditor general, told lawmakers in April that the divorce payments will become legally binding as soon as the United Kingdom signs a Withdrawal Agreement.

Mr Raab repeated the British government's intention to finalise the withdrawal agreement, as well as a political declaration on future UK-EU relations, in October. Precise details will not be known until the withdrawal agreement is concluded.
