European Union 'is prepared to delay Brexit until at least July'

May looks little closer to securing the support she needs, but writing in the Sunday Express she said lawmakers must not let down the people who voted for Brexit. Mrs May is expected to suffer a big defeat when parliament votes on Tuesday.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has suggested that Labour would table a motion of no confidence in the government if, as expected, the prime minister's deal fails to gain enough votes to pass but he has refused to be drawn on the timing of that.

Sir Vince said this could happen by cancelling Article 50 - which he noted would be "resented by lots of people" - or via a second referendum.

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.

"I still think that passing this deal is the responsible thing to do".

Warning that there may be no consensus in the Commons around any possible outcome, the foreign secretary told Today: "If this deal is rejected, ultimately what we may end up with is not a different type of Brexit but Brexit paralysis".

Senior EU sources said that a further, lengthier extension could be offered at a later date should a general election or second referendum be called although the upcoming May elections for the European parliament would create complications.

"If MPs who represent seats that voted 70% to leave say "sorry guys, we're still going to have freedom of movement", they will turn against the political mainstream".

According to Cook, the shortfall is "over 100 percent from iPhone and it's primarily in greater China". Apple announced a lower-than-expected guidance for the upcoming quarterly report .

Vince Cable, leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said parliament would act to prevent a no deal Brexit, and could ultimately seek to prevent Brexit altogether.

Labour is also facing calls to put forward a vote of no confidence in Mrs May and a general election could take place should the Government lose.

May faced further opposition to her deal from her former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab who believes the United Kingdom should pursue a hard-Brexit.

Theresa May faces huge opposition to her Brexit bill, from both sides of the House of Commons.

Asked during an interview on BBC TV about the possibility of a second Brexit referendum, Corbyn said: "My own view is that I would rather get a negotiated deal now if we can to stop the danger of a no-deal exit from the European Union on 29 March which would be catastrophic for industry, catastrophic for trade".

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".

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.
