Jeremy Corbyn accused the government of sinking into a “mire of chaos and division” over Brexit during bitter clashes.

In their final exchanges before the parliamentary summer recess, the Labour leader said she was neglecting the country’s needs because she was caught up in Tory infighting. Mrs May (inset) retorted that the Government
