The Telegraph writes that the parliamentarians are united in the so-called Brexit Delivery Group ("Brexit implementation Group"). It includes both ideological supporters and opponents of the UK's EU exit. They are united by the fact that they do not want to allow "hard Brexit" - exit from the EU without a deal. The group is led by deputies Simon Hart and Andrew Percy.
