Elsewhere Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay was said to have held "constructive" talks on Monday night with the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier in Brussels.

Mr Barnier's deputy Sabine Weyand made clear that the European Commission is not pinning its hopes on the United Kingdom eventually deciding to mount a second referendum, telling a conference in Germany that the only option was a structured exit.

Their teams would continue to work in the meantime "on finding a way forward", it added.

On Wednesday, Mrs May is expected to table another motion to the House of Commons, outlining the next steps she wants to take in the Brexit process.

"I think it must be pretty obvious that if you are going to have a time limit to the backstop, and I think that would be a very good thing, it's got to fall before the next election".

This week's Brexit votes may not come to much.

Mr Johnson, who led the official Vote Leave campaign in the referendum, warned the Prime Minister against trying to do a deal with Labour to get her agreement through.

Or it may well not.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has sought a compromise with opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn in hopes of securing his backing for a divorce deal with the European Union.

It comes after Mr Corbyn last week set out five Brexit demands to the Prime Minister, among which included the United Kingdom joining a permanent customs union with the European Union.

Mrs Leadsom, an ardent Leaver, said she would stay in the Cabinet to help Mrs May deliver Brexit and denied that the PM was softening her stance over a customs union in a letter to Mr Corbyn.

Mrs Leadsom said there was "no chance" Mrs May would adopt Mr Corbyn's "view of the world", adding: "The Prime Minister has been absolutely clear we're leaving the EU, we're leaving the customs union, we're leaving the single market".

Mr Corbyn has repeatedly said there should be an election if Mrs May can not get a deal through Parliament and he has faced concerted pressure from some in his party to push for a second public vote. He has also faced pressure from some of his MPs to push for another public vote on Brexit.

Liam Fox's trade department has secretly admitted to some of Britain's biggest businesses that the 40 free trade deals the minister promised to have ready by Brexit day are "unlikely" to materialise.

"I don't see that in the letter", he said.

"He's unclear as to whether he also wants to stop free movement, and of course the EU's view would be, "well, if you're in the customs union then you have free movement and you abide by the common external tariff".

Her spokesman said she is committed to replacing the backstop with "alternative arrangements".

Mr Corbyn's letter to the prime minister was "interesting in tone and substance", Mr Barnier said.

Meanwhile, a group of anti-Brexit Conservative MPs and peers have written to the Prime Minister asking for a meeting to discuss the UK's exit being delayed.
