Chequers plan is only deal on the table with EU: Britain’s Javid

LONDON (Reuters) – British interior minister Sajid Javid said on Sunday that the prime minister’s so-called Chequers plan was the only one on the table with the European Union, suggesting that Theresa May is not planning to succumb to pressure to change tack over Brexit.

“The only deal that we’ve got on the table, that’s the Chequers deal,” Javid told the BBC’s Andrew Marr show.

“And so it is up to the EU to respond to that.”
