The sixteenth-century residence in Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire, is the prime minister’s country residence. Theresa May sought cabinet agreement for her Brexit plan there in 2018.
In an interview with ITV’s Julie Etchingham, Mr Corbyn was asked: “Would you consider giving up Chequers if you were Prime Minister?”
He replied: “I would indeed. It can’t be right. We’re a country with 150 billionaires, and we’ve still got people sleeping on the streets.”
