Political commentator Dan Hodges has said Labour's 170 questions suggest the party is trying to "put a break on Brexit."

Speaking to Julia Hartley-Brewer, Hodges - who writes for The Mail on Sunday, said the questions from Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer and Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry might be an attempt to "derail" the secession process.

Starmer and Thornberry lodged the questions amid renewed pressure from the opposition for ministers to set out their Brexit strategy to MPs before formal negotiations begin.
