There have been rumblings among some of the party's MPs about the performance of both the chancellor and the prime minister as the negotiations dominate.

Writing for ConservativeHome, Nicky Morgan, MP for Loughborough, said: "There were times last year for the prime minister to step aside – immediately after the June 2017 election, or after Party Conference.

"That didn’t happen. Maybe the cabinet should have asked her to go, but they didn’t.

"We are now into a critical nine months for the future of the country, so the Cabinet need to get a grip by acting collectively to shape Brexit".

The PM's official spokesman said she was "grasping the many opportunities" of Brexit while also acting on housing, schools and the NHS.

Ms Morgan's letter was prompted by the fatal stabbing in Moira Street (pictured below) earlier this month.

"There were good environmental reasons for switching the street lights off but there may well be reasons for revisiting that decision," she told BBC Radio Leicester.

Chief constable Simon Cole has said there is no evidence to link violent crime with street lights being switched off.

Free ATMs 'must be available UK-wide'

Dave Wade

BBC Local Live

Isn't it annoying when you need some cash and the only ATM you can find levies a charge?

Loughborough's MP has told the Link network, which oversees free-to-use cash machines across the UK, there must be an even spread of cash machines across the country.

Nicky Morgan, who chairs the Commons Treasury Committee, has written to the head of the Link network telling them any big fall in the number of ATMs would "clearly be of concern".

Under proposals published earlier this month, Link would reduce the amount it charges card issuers to allow customers to use the machines from around 25p per withdrawal to 20p from next April.

But the ATM industry association said this could lead to some machines no longer being "economically viable".

Sir Mark Boleat, who chairs Link and to whom the letter is addressed, said: "We do not envisage any scenario where there will be areas of the UK which will not continue to have free access to their money."

BBC Local Live

Speaking about Boris Johnson's handling of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe being held in Iran, the former education secretary said: "I don't know what advice he is getting".

Mr Johnson has today apologised for his remarks about the British-Iranian mother who is being held in prison in Iran.

Mr Gove told the BBC at the weekend he did not know what Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been doing in Iran when she was arrested.

'Don't turn a blind eye' to Westminster harassment claims

BBC Radio 5 live

A Conservative MP has called for change in the "culture" at Westminster, amid a series of allegations of inappropriate behaviour in Parliament.

Nicky Morgan
BBC

Nicky Morgan, MP for Loughborough, said she believes many people working in Westminister do not know where to turn.

She said: "If it's your first job and you're vulnerable and you don't know if this behaviour is acceptable and you don't know who to talk to, actually where do you turn to?

"I think in any workplace it's the people at the top who set the cultures and clearly the culture that we're working in in Westminster - as in many other workplaces - people have to think about the culture they're setting, not just turn a blind eye to it."

At the moment, there is a 24-hour confidential helpline for all staff to report abuse claims and an HR advice service for MPs and their staff.

But those who work for a Member of Parliament are directly employed by that person's office and are not covered by grievance procedures for other parliamentary staff.

Nicky Morgan: Parliament 'must get say' on Brexit deal

The Daily Politics

Parliament not getting a vote on the government's final Brexit deal would be "clearly unacceptable," according to a prominent Conservative MP.

BBC

Nicky Morgan, MP for Loughborough, was responding to comments from Brexit secretary David Davis, who said any deal may not be done until the "59th minute of the 11th hour".

"It would be completely pointless to have such a vote at that stage and so it is clearly unacceptable," Ms Morgan told the Daily Politics on BBC Two.

The former education secretary added that she was confident Theresa May would make sure the UK and European Parliament would "have time" to vote on any deal.

The government agreed earlier this year to give Parliament a "meaningful" say on the outcome of the current negotiations but Downing Street has not said when it will be.

Nicky Morgan, the MP for Loughborough and a former education secretary, said there should also be an emphasis on skills such as resilience, persistence, grit and leadership as well as academic study.

This, she said, would give young people the ability to cope with what "life throws at them".

She added: "Yes, we need our students to be taught knowledge and acquire knowledge in their time at school but they also need to have character development and to learn about character.
