"They (the UK) will have to decide what they want by October", he said.

I am speaking about this today because I have strongly opposed the idea that during this further extension the United Kingdom should be treated as a second category member state.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said in a letter to civil servants on Monday that preparations for a no-deal outcome should continue despite a new Brexit deadline extension agreed between London and Brussels, The Guardian reported.

The European commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, called on Britain to remain a cooperative and loyal member state during its extra period in the bloc.

"Talks we are having with Labour are detailed and I think more constructive than people have thought", Hunt told BBC radio.

Amid speculation about Theresa May's future, Ms Rudd said it was "entirely possible" she could be a candidate in a future leadership election, telling BBC Radio 5 Live "I don't rule it out".

On Sunday, cabinet minister David Lidington said the government and Labour were "testing out" each other's ideas as they tried to resolve the Brexit deadlock.
