David Gauke: There isn't a mandate for no-deal Brexit

David Gauke has warned MPs that next week could be the only chance for them to act and stop a no-deal Brexit.

The former justice secretary under Theresa May voted Remain in the referendum, but supported a deal to leave the EU three times in the Commons.

However, he told the BBC's political editor, Laura Kuenssberg, there was "no mandate" for a no-deal Brexit.

And after the new PM's decision to prorogue Parliament, Mr Gauke said people against the scenario "have to look at what our options are".
