Brexit may never happen if MPs reject May's deal, says Liam Fox

Mrs Leadsom, who was a leading pro-Leave figure in the referendum campaign, said the agreement hammered out with Brussels delivered on the 2016 vote.

"These are the things that matter most and by agreeing a good Brexit deal, we can focus our energy on those things - strengthening our economy and opening up new markets for our businesses to create new jobs and opportunities across the United Kingdom".

Labour's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said that parliament would need to discuss all options, including a possible delay, if and when May failed to get her blueprint through the Commons.

Foster said: "The prime minister has promised to get changes to the legally binding Withdrawal Agreement".

The Brexit uncertainty found echoes in Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable's speech as well, who said a second referendum was "the only way forward".

DUP leader Arlene Foster, who is also opposed to Mrs May's Brexit deal despite her party being allied to the Tory government at Westminster, vowed to "ensure the right decisions are made" in 2019.

The research showed that while "the rest of the world saw Britain standing 10 feet tall - when actually we stood six feet tall - Britons saw us standing five feet tall, not the six, and certainly not the 10", he said.
