MP Jacob Rees-Mogg on Conservative Brexit 'turf wars' claims

Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg says there has been only "cricket pitch mowing", not turf wars, over Brexit.

There have been reports of tussles between Brexit Secretary David Davis, International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and their departments over responsibility for the Brexit negotiations.
