British Premier May Fends off Tory Rebels in Parliament

Diplomatic sources told the paper the EU would push for another fudge, accepting parts of Mrs May's plan and direct the United Kingdom towards a customs union with the bloc, leaving the country unable to control trade policy.

Glyn Davies, MP for Montgomeryshire, said one of these amendments, passed by just three votes, meant the deal was now likely to be rejected by the EU.

Mrs May also strongly denied claims she had shown German Chancellor Angela Merkel her Brexit plans before presenting them to cabinet ministers.

The closeness of the ballots and the strength of feeling on both sides of her divided party underlined the scale of her task in getting the final Brexit deal she negotiates with the European Union through Parliament.

Greening said such a vote was the only way to break the stalemate in parliament over the best future relationship with the bloc and branded May's plan as "a fudge I can't support". This has ramped up planning for the "no deal" Brexit that could shake up financial markets and upset trade flows across Europe and elsewhere.

Ms Soubry said the whipping operation during Brexit votes on Tuesday evening had been an "appalling spectacle".

Speaking at the IQVIA event in London, PPP's managing director Ben Howlett said the remained huge uncertainty about where the Brexit process was heading, including on issues relating to pharma and future EMA relations.

"At absolutely no point because BREXIT continues to mean BREXIT", Mrs.

"Chequers would not be my preferred option. but I'm also clear that Conservative Party civil war is not where we need to be at this time - the threat of a Corbyn government, or no Brexit at all, has to be borne in mind".

"There is no way a government white paper can stipulate that 27 other countries are going to collect our tariffs for us".

"That would have looked too much like plunging the knife into the prime minister", a close ally told Sky News.

"Now that there is collective agreement to accelerate delivery of our plans, will she please give instructions that every communication related to no deal serves to bolster our negotiating position and by reinforcing the credibility and the feasibility of those contingency plans?"

"Problem is, I don't think that she's in charge anymore".

It was recently reported the current tally had reached around 40, amid intense anger among Tory MPs at Mrs May's Brexit strategy, as agreed by ministers at a Chequers away day earlier this month.

North Shropshire's Owen Paterson, an arch-eurosceptic, agreed with Mr Kawczynski that leaving the European Union without a trade deal and falling back on World Trade Organisation rules was nothing to be afraid of.

Trade deals now struck on behalf of the United Kingdom by the European Union are subject to scrutiny from MEPs and veto by Member States.

While Mrs May faces a session in front of the Liaison Committee, made up of senior MPs who chair Commons select committees, a debate will take place in the main chamber on the future relationship between the United Kingdom and EU.

Resignation statements like Mr Johnson's have previously been used by former ministers to inflict a departing blow on prime ministers with whom they have clashed. Two cabinet ministers - Boris Johnson and David Davis - quit in protest, claiming May is failing to deliver the clean break from the European Union the public voted for in the referendum. "The big prize is still Brexit, but not a Brexit that increases prices and lowers the UK's standard of living".
