Increased risk United Kingdom parliament acts to frustrate Britain's European Union exit - Brexit minister

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay told the BBC's Andrew Marr show: "There are lots of different plans being put forward by members of parliament that don't respect the result or risk no deal".

Theresa May's Brexit deal looks set to suffer a landslide defeat in the House of Commons on Tuesday.

Writing in the Sunday Express, Mrs May said: "You, the British people, voted to leave".

British Opposition Leader Jeremy Corbyn said the Labour Party will seek to force a general election if Parliament rejects May's deal.

It was the second setback in 24 hours for the prime minister, after MPs also voted to deny the government certain taxation powers in a no-deal scenario - an attempt to scupper that prospect.

"An election would take place what February-March time, clearly there is only a few weeks then between that and the leave date, there would have to be a time for those negotiations", he added. The pair surged during London trading hours after Conservative rebel Dominic Grieve urged UK PM Theresa May to delay Brexit if her deal is rejected, and while Downing Street later stated that there won't be an extension of Art. 50, the currency held on to gains.

"The country does have a right to know what members of parliament are for, not just what they are against, and it's important that the house comes to a view as to what it can back", Barclay said.

On the other side of the divide on Britain's departure from the European Union, Mr Raab has said Mrs May's deal "suffocates the opportunities Brexit offers".

- The Prime Minister faced calls from a predecessor, Sir John Major, to revoke Article 50 to halt Brexit - as he warned it would be "morally reprehensible" to crash out without a deal.

It has also emerged that 14 military planners have been deployed to four key Whitehall departments to assist with no-deal planning, according to a Freedom of Information request by the Observer.

The Brexiteer said the millions who voted for Brexit would feel "cheated" if the United Kingdom did not exit the EU.

"I think it's now looking much less likely that parliament would allow a no-deal outcome anyway", said Mr Hunt.

Mrs May was boosted on Thursday by two Tory backbenchers - her former policy adviser George Freeman, and Trudy Harrison - indicating they will back her deal, as well as by a call from Japanese PM Shinzo Abe for the United Kingdom to avoid no-deal.

After stepping down, he said he did not "believe" in the Prime Minister's strategy and warned the United Kingdom was "giving away too much and too easily" to the European Union in the negotiations.
