UK PM May's leadership is increasingly vulnerable to a challenge - Scotiabank

Theresa May and David Davis

He added the PM believed "personal vitriol has no place in our politics".

Financial markets seized on the possibility that May could be toppled as prime minister by rebels in her Conservative Party, driving sterling below $1.30 to its lowest since October 4.

Furious backbenchers warned the Prime Minister she is "drinking in the last chance saloon" after tensions flared over her negotiating strategy following a Brussels summit.

"When will this Government stand up to the European Union, when will it say it wants a free trade agreement and doesn't see the need to pay for it, and when will it rule out signing a withdrawal agreement - a surrender document which we can not afford?"

She reported progress on some issues including in areas of security, defence and Gibraltar, noting that "95 percent of the withdrawal agreement and its protocols are now settled".

The EU proposal for Northern Ireland to remain in the bloc's customs union has been rejected by May as it would potentially create barriers to trade with the rest of Britain - something ruled out by Northern Ireland's DUP party, whose 10 votes in parliament prop up May's government.

"But I do think that the Prime Minister and I'm sure she is, needs to listen to the concerns of the party".

A fraught phone call with her Cabinet on Sunday saw ministers line up to challenge the prime minister over her handling of Brexit negotiations.

The new time system is not due to come into force until after March next year - and will require the support of all European Union countries and the support of MEPs, but with the United Kingdom likely to have a transition period - if a deal is agreed - it could also end up having to adopt the new "flat time" as well.

Asked about a possible no-confidence vote, the transport secretary told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "This is really a moment for calm, level heads".

"So late in the day, there would not be time to revisit the negotiation".

Mr Redwood argued so far the United Kingdom has already achieved the Brexit Britons voted for thanks to two important pieces of legislation approved by Parliament.

May's 95% estimate is higher than that of Michel Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator, who said on Friday that 90% of the deal had been agreed.

Mrs May, referring to the Brexit process, responded by telling MPs: "It is incumbent on all of us in public life to be careful about the language we use".

"How does it amount to Parliament taking back control if the government are now attempting to gag our democracy by preventing MPs from being able to amend the motion first?"

He added that whoever briefed in violent terms about the prime minister's future "needs to have the fullest weight of the Conservative Party upon them".

"Any amendment to the motion would not be able to effect amendments to the withdrawal agreement or the future framework,
which will have been agreed at the worldwide level between the United Kingdom and the European Union;
nor could any such amendment delay or prevent our departure from the EU as set out under article 50", Mr Raab told MPs.
