LONDON (Reuters) – Michael Gove, Britain’s environment minister and a high-profile Brexit supporter, will not follow his colleague Andrea Leadsom and resign, a BBC reporter quoted him as saying on Thursday.
Leadsom, leader of the House of Commons, quit on Wednesday in protest at May’s latest attempt to get a Brexit deal through parliament.
