"In breaking her promises she would be agreeing to break up the United Kingdom".
Theresa May is under pressure to reverse course after Cabinet ministers threatened to walk out over her reported plans for a potential Brexit "backstop" which could effectively keep Britain permanently inside a Customs Union with the EU after Brexit.
The Northern Ireland Retail Consortium (NIRC), which was also at the meeting, said the deal on the table was uniquely beneficial to Northern Ireland's economy, which would suffer disproportionately from Brexit.
The Irish backstop measure, created to ensure no new border emerges between Ireland and Northern Ireland, is supposed to be temporary until a UK-EU trade deal can be agreed, and Theresa May pledged earlier this year that the arrangement would expire "at the very latest by the end of December 2021".
To compound the British PM's troubles, the ruling party's Northern Irish allies - Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) - are threatening to pull out their support and effectively bring down the Tory government if May gave in to the European Union demands over the Irish border issue ahead of a crucial summit in Brussels next week.
Asked if there was concern about the DUP's threats to withdraw its support, the Prime Minister responded saying "the DUP will do what the DUP will do".
May's Brexit plan is unpopular with the public and the majority of the cabinet reportedly now prefer a free trade deal.
