Lord Marland: Whitehall lacks 'skillset'

Lord Marland, former trade envoy for David Cameron, has said Whitehall doesn't have "the skillset" to deliver a "hard-nosed" Brexit negotiation.

He told Radio 4's Today programme that "negotiations should be done by politicians" and that diplomats were there to "smooth the way and pick up the pieces".
