British PM May cautions of 'catastrophe' if Brexit plan rejected

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May speaks outside 10 Downing Street after a confidence vote by Conservative Party Members of Parliament, in London Britain

Mrs May, who postponed a vote in parliament on her deal in December after admitting she was set to lose it, said MPs must not let down the people who backed Brexit in a June 2016 referendum.

"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.

"I think parliament is very committed to try to stop no-deal, but I think we have to recognise that there is a deal on the table, it does broadly deliver the Brexit people voted for, and if we don't find a way to get this through, we are taking some very big risks".

London mayor Sadiq Khan suggested May should step down and call a general election if she loses next week's vote.

After a week in which parliament forced the government to promise to come back with a "plan B" within days if May's deal is rejected, Mr Barclay said the risk of parliament acting in a way that frustrates Brexit had increased.

Former prime minister Sir John Major has said the United Kingdom must revoke Article 50 and cancel Brexit to avoid no-deal because "jumping off a cliff never has a happy ending".

The news came as Tory MPs will today [Monday] raise concerns about a secretive committee run by unelected officials with the power to write new laws affecting Britons for years after Brexit as a result of Mrs May's deal.

Mrs May is facing a heavy defeat on Tuesday as Conservative backbenchers prepare to unite with Labour to vote the deal down.

The Sunday Times reported a group of senior cross-party backbench rebels are now plotting to change House of Commons rules to enable them to override government business if the deal falls.

He also appeared to out at Labour over the continued confusion about what stance it would take on Brexit if it secured a snap general election.

May has urged Parliament to support her little-loved European Union divorce deal so that Britain doesn't leave the European Union on March 29 without an agreement on exit terms.

Mr Grayling also said: "I have not asked for military support for the operations in Kent - that will be handled by Highways England and Kent Police".

"But if you offered me this deal back in 2016 at the time of the referendum and you'd have said instead of staying in the European Union you can have this, I'd have said thank you very much".

Mrs May faced further opposition to her deal from her former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab. He urged both pro-Remain and "hard Brexit" party colleagues to drop their "political game-playing" and row in behind Theresa May's deal.

The vote had been scheduled to take place in December but was called off at the last minute by the prime minister, who was facing nearly certain defeat.
