Amber Rudd has furiously denied claims that she gave secret Brexit-blocking help to Anna Soubry

Amber Rudd has furiously denied claims that she gave secret Brexit-blocking help to Anna Soubry – one of the Tory MPs dubbed the Three Amigos who last week deserted the party in protest at what she said was the growing influence of Eurosceptics. 

A senior party source has claimed to The Mail on Sunday that Ms Soubry had been heard ‘boasting’ that Ms Rudd – who sits in sensitive Cabinet committees involved in Brexit planning – had ‘pointed her in the right direction’ when she was putting down an amendment earlier this month to call on the Government to publish its analysis of the impact of a No Deal Brexit on business and trade. 

The claim has intensified the private anger of Brexiteers over Ms Rudd’s increasingly active campaigning to block the UK’s exit from the EU. 

She was one of three Cabinet Ministers who signalled yesterday that they were ready to force a delay to Brexit to stop a No Deal. However, Ms Soubry said: ‘I never discuss private conversations, but Amber did not help me with the amendment.’ 

A source close to Ms Rudd claimed that her No Deal discussions with Ms Soubry had been restricted to ‘something that Anna had read in a newspaper’.
