Mrs. May pledged to return to the House of Commons by Monday, January 21 with proposals for a new way of proceeding, opening the door to parliamentarians to force votes on the rival plan Bs.

The prospect of a delay in Article 50 process arises because in addition to the business itself, MPs must approve a commercial bill, an agriculture law, a health law, a law on financial services and an immigration law.

Following the news from Brussels this week that British officials have already "highlighted" if the other 27 EU countries would be willing to approve a limited extension of the Article 50 process that sets a two-year deadline for Britain to leave the blockade.

A Downing Street spokesperson said Ms. May had been "very clear" that Britain would leave the EU on March 29th as scheduled.

One minister said that there was a "strong resistance" around the Cabinet table for any delay. "Nobody wants it," they said. "We may have to sit down and really give priority, but we would be in an emergency situation."

Ministers think that Ms. May will have to allow indicative votes on alternative plans – including a popular vote and an agreement with Norway – if she loses heavily.

But an elderly Tory warned: "Ministers and PPS would feel very sorry if they did not have a free vote.

" You would have to resign. Ministers have been able to think that the process would work. "

Tory added:" I am absolutely certain that it will be examined. "

No source said that Mrs. May" is not a fan "of the idea, however.

Speaking today, Ms. Rudd said she is" committed "to ensuring that the United Kingdom does not leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement.

"This is a strong and big country, we will find a way to success," he said. "But I do not think any agreement would be positive for this country and I pledge to do in order to find an alternative. "

Greg Clark had previously mentioned that he would quit if the government had tried a no-deal (PA)

Secretary of the economy Greg Clark had already mentioned that he would have renounced if the government had attempted to exit without agreement, while the justice secretary David Gauke predicted a removal of the ministers in such circumstances.

Ms. Rudd said it was "right" for the government to make preparations for a Brexit no-deal, comparing it with a seat belt when s i drive a fast car.

Mr. Hunt appeared to row from previous comments that suggested he be relaxed about the no-deal, saying he thought that Parliament would block a messy departure.

Emphasized that the public would see any failure to deliver Brexit as a "fundamental breach of trust" that the country would "regret for many, many generations".

"If this agreement is rejected, in the end what we could achieve is not a different type of Brexit but a paralysis to Brexit," he said. "And the Brexit paralysis eventually could lead to no Brexit."

He warned Tory's hard eurosceptic supporters, counting on the time he ticked the default option of a no-deal Brexit on March 29 if Mrs. May's agreement was rejected. [19659002] "Now it seems much less probable that Parliament would allow an outcome without agreement," he said.

"We have seen from this week that Parliament has the capacity to succeed and give results."

Two of the biggest donors in the Brexit campaign say they now believe that the project will eventually be abandoned by the government.

Peter Hargreaves, the billionaire who was the second biggest donor of the 2016 holiday campaign, and veteran hedge fund manager Crispin Odey told Reuters they expect Britain to remain in the EU.

"I totally surrendered, I am totally desperate, I do not think Brexit can happen," said Hargreaves, 72, one of Britain's richest men and donated £ 3.2 million (4.08 millions of dollars) to the leave campaign.

Mrs May was boosted on Thursday by two Tory backstelles – her former political advisor George Freeman, and Trudy Harrison – who announced they would support her deal, as well as a phone call from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for the UK to avoid the non-agreement.

And the Prime Minister has pledged to reach the Labor and Trade Unions in a call for the 11th hour to save a vote that she should lose by a wide margin.

A minister, Digital Minister Margot James, said this week that a delay could be necessary if the withdrawal agreement is revoked. And yesterday Jeremy Corbyn admitted that Labor could look for a delay if there was a general election.
