A petition with over 1 million signatures calling for a second vote was handed to the prime minister recently.

European Union negotiator Michel Barnier said on Thursday that the only deal available was the one agreed with Brussels. "In turn, that would mean the most damaging uncertainty economically".

"The idea of renegotiating at the 11th hour is simply a delusion", Hammond told Parliament. "Either will leave us a fractured society and a divided nation".

Ministers continue to insist that the only alternatives to the Brexit deal are "no deal" or no Brexit.

MPs can now use the government's legal advice in their decision-making process ahead of Parliament's Dec 11 vote on May's deal, which sets out how the United Kingdom will interact with the European Union after it withdraws from the bloc at the end of March.

She has toured the country and television studios to try to sell her deal, but a move to present her government's legal advice to parliament seemed to backfire.

"The only way to resolve this is to go back to the people", he said.

May signalled that she was determined to plough on with a vote and suggested a "parliamentary lock" on the Irish backstop could persuade more MPs to back it.

As President Trump pointed out at the end of last month, the current agreement looks "great" for the EU. "She is obviously aware that there is strength of feeling on this issue".

May hinted she might give parliament a greater role in deciding whether to start the backstop or extend a transition period under which more European Union membership terms would apply.

Ms Shah (Bradford West) said: "It's clear from the fiasco that we've seen in recent days this Government is not fit to lead the country, nor to deliver a Brexit agreement that won't leave us in a worse position than we already find ourselves in through years of Tory austerity.

It is a vote in which the future of their country is at stake", he said.

Ms Lucas said it was "weird" that the Cabinet was not provided with formal legal advice on the backstop until the very day that the Commons voted for it to be released.

But he admitted: "I don't think there's any point in ploughing ahead and losing the vote heavily". But he says the next step isn't a general election, which he reckons is "most unlikely".

"We have therefore been left with no option but to write to the speaker of the House of Commons to ask him to launch proceedings of contempt", Labour's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said.

May said. "I don't think that's right".
