British MPs to hold key Brexit vote on January 15

The National Chris Grayling Brexit vote will 'definitely' happen, UK's May says, as new poll shows most Britons would now vote to remain

He told the BBC: "The government has to ensure that all eventualities are covered".

"We would have to react immediately if something were to change", he warned.

If she fails to secure the support of the House of Commons in the vote this month, May suggested Brexit without a deal would be in the cards - something analysis by the Treasury and the Bank of England suggests could be economically devastating.

The House of Commons will on Wednesday resume debate on the deal that was halted in December when May postponed the vote in the face of widespread opposition.

May survived a non-confidence vote from within her party last month, but was not given an overwhelming boost from the secret ballot, with 117 of 317 going against her. "I will be voting with [Cooper] against my own government, very much against my own will, and I will continue to do so right up until the end of March in the hope we can put paid to this disastrous proposal". Seven bills must be implemented in order to provide a smooth exit by March, including trade, agriculture, healthcare, financial services, fisheries and immigration, as well as legislation for the withdrawal agreement.

But it is a politically important victory for those opposed to no-deal, demonstrating that they have the ability to defeat the government.

Kent Police said it escorted the lorries between the key port of Dover in Kent and nearby Manston Airfield, which could serve as an emergency lorry park if any post-Brexit border checks cause major delays for freight vehicles moving across the English Channel to France.

"This is not meant to be used in the first place, and if it is, it's only temporary", she said of the backstop.

Nevertheless, her deal still looks like it will struggle to pass in Parliament.

Speaking to reporters during a trip to Mali, he said: "The summit conclusions at our last meeting in December provided written assurances, but what's happening at the moment is there is close contact between the United Kingdom and European Union institutions as to whether a further set of written guarantees, explanations and assurances could make a difference. That is not a decision the UK Government could take, it would require the consent of all 27 member states", he said.

But concerns are mounting that May will be unable to push the deal through a deeply divided British parliament.

Ms Cooper said the amendment "gives us the chance to rule out the worst outcome". Under a quarter - 23 percent - would back Theresa May's deal, and 15 percent said they would prefer to remain in the EU.

May has repeatedly said that the alternatives to her Brexit deal are "no deal" or "no Brexit".

The latest estimate from EY says that £800-billion in assets would move, a fraction of Britain's £8-trillion banking sector.

Lawmakers, however, are seeking to flex their muscles.

"Theresa May must now rule out no deal once and for all", he added.

The EU executive repeated on Monday that leaders would not renegotiate the treaty and said it was pressing on with planning for Britain to crash out of the Union without a deal. "That is why we are taking every opportunity possible in parliament to prevent no deal", Corbyn said, cited by the Guardian.

The majority of Mr Corbyn's party backed the cross-party amendment, which had been tabled by Labour MP Yvette Cooper, although three of his party's Brexiteers voted with the government.
