Brexit: Jeremy Hunt says UK Parliament won’t allow no deal

Brexit: Jeremy Hunt says UK Parliament won’t allow no deal

Most British lawmakers also oppose the prospect of leaving the European Union without a deal.

A senior Norway-supporting Labour MP said their option could gain the upper hand as it can command broader support among Tories.

But the Survation poll is further evidence of the huge task Mrs May faces in rescuing her deal, which seems set for defeat in the Commons on Tuesday.

"The idea that if MPs vote down the deal, we head to no-deal has always been a false threat and the Foreign Secretary has now effectively admitted it".

Meanwhile, No 10 is said to be alarmed at the prospect of MPs taking control of Brexit if Tuesday's vote is lost. Barry Gardiner, the shadow trade minister, said last week that a vote of no confidence would "obviously" have to follow immediately after a defeat for May's deal.

Mrs May said: "When you turned out to vote in the referendum, you did so because you wanted your voice to be heard".

On the opposition benches, pressure is also mounting on Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Roy Hattersley, the Labour grandee, says the British people should have a vote on Theresa May's deal. And, again, I feel the British people are behind us.

Writing in the Observer, London's Labour mayor, Sadiq Khan says that he will step up his campaign for another referendum if an election is not called immediately: "A public vote would not only allow us to move beyond the current stalemate but would actually start the desperately needed process of healing the deep divisions that have opened within our society". Let's give her something that MPs will never accept. "There will be complete panic and they will all come crying back to us saying oh please take us back", he told The Daily Express.

The source also said there would be a "releasing of dossiers" critical of the rival plan backed by some Tory and Labour MPs for Norway-style membership of the single market "to kill it off once and for all". A total of 44 per cent favour a "Plan B" - seen by most as likely to offer a "softer" Brexit - with 32 per cent in favour of "no deal".

Mr Hunt warned those wishing to stay in the European Union they may not be able to rely on the clock ticking down to the default option of a no-deal Brexit on March 29 if Mrs May's deal is voted down.

A cross-party group of People's Vote backers will meet on Wednesday morning at around 10am in Smith Square, around the corner from the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, to talk about common areas of agreement for the following 72 hours.

Business secretary Greg Clark, also writing in the Observer, has appealed to pro-Brexit Labour MPs to back May's deal, insisting that the government would protect workers rights when the United Kingdom is outside the EU. This week, lawmakers passed an amendment forcing the government to come back to Parliament with a new plan within three working days of the deal being rejected.
