Hunt, who is foreign secretary, said that with a 'more aggressive Russia' and a 'more autocratic China', he would boost defence spending if he became prime minister

Jeremy Hunt, one of the leading candidates vying to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May, said he would leave the European Union without a deal but with a heavy heart and that he hoped the bloc would engage with a new British leader.

"Our failure to deliver Brexit has put our country and our party in grave peril. The leadership I offer is based on one simple truth: without Brexit there will be no Conservative government and maybe no Conservative Party," he said.

"If we want a deal we are going to have to engage seriously with Brussels. From my conversations with European leaders, it is clear to me there is a deal to be done, they want us to come up with proposals."

Hunt, who is foreign secretary, said that with a "more aggressive Russia" and a "more autocratic China", he would boost defence spending if he became prime minister.

"Peace comes through strength," Hunt said. "With a more aggressive Russia and a more autocratic China I pledge to increase the proportion of our GDP we spend on defence."
