“I am incredibly sad to have had to announce my resignation as a minister in Her Majesty’s government so that I can better speak up for my constituents and country over how Brexit is currently being delivered,” Lee said on Twitter.

Earlier this year, Lee had called on the government to release its economic impact assessments of Brexit and suggesting the government change tack in talks with the EU.
