Government makes last-ditch appeal for Brexit vote backing

European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said discussions were continuing with No 10 as to what form such assurances could take, as he warned that a no-deal would be a "catastrophe".

"I don't like the prospect of a no-deal".

He has since become a vocal critic of the Government's Brexit plans, urging ministers to take a tougher stance in divorce talks.

In the event her exit deal is voted down, some Brexiters have argued for the United Kingdom to leave without a deal, but other MPs also object to the no deal Brexit - calling for either Article 50 to be extended or revoked, or a second referendum to allow the general public to decide the next move.

Asked whether MPs could bring forward legislation to revoke Article 50, Cable told BBC TV: "Yes that is exactly what will happen and that is exactly what we should be doing because it would be absolutely outrageous and unforgivable if the chaotic circumstances of a no deal were allowed to happen".

Meanwhile, Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd said she is "committed" to ensuring that the United Kingdom does not leave without a deal.

More than 100 Conservatives and 10 DUP MPs are among those set to oppose the government's deal on Tuesday.

"So those on the Brexiteer side seeking ideological purity with a deal are risking Brexit, because there is a growing risk that events could unfold in ways that (mean) they are leaving the door ajar to ways that increase the risk to Brexit".

"It couldn't be simpler and I have to say, I did think on that day, 'That's it".

The country's 29 March deadline for exiting the European Union is now regarded by Brussels as highly unlikely to be met given the domestic opposition facing the prime minister and it is expecting a request from London to extend article 50 in the coming weeks.

And he warned of a "growing risk" that Parliament could frustrate Brexit, following reports of a plot to change Commons rules to enable backbench motions to take precedence over Government business if Mrs May's deal falls.

Mr Grayling also said: "I have not asked for military support for the operations in Kent - that will be handled by Highways England and Kent Police". "We have seen from this week that parliament has the ability to assert itself and to shape outcomes".

He used an article in the Sunday Telegraph to urge MPs to vote down May's "bad" deal to send a message to Brussels that the United Kingdom "will not be bullied".

Tory MPs including Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown and Sir Edward Leigh said they would support the Government in the meaningful vote.

But she said: "I intend to work with colleagues to make sure we avoid it".

The vote had been scheduled to take place in December but was called off at the last minute by the prime minister, who was facing nearly certain defeat.

Pressed for a third time by interviewer Justin Webb on whether she would quit if Mrs May went for the no-deal option, Ms Rudd cut him short by saying: "Thank you very much, Justin".
