If a further 47 Conservative MPs send in letters it will trigger a vote of confidence in the leader.

Amendments lodged by the head of the European Research Group of pro-Brexit backbenchers and supported by MPs including the Scottish Conservative Ross Thomson would block the government from keeping one foot in the EU customs union for goods, and prevent a proposed "backstop" solution for the Irish border from creating an internal trade boundary in the Irish Sea.

Mrs May addressed the 1922 Committee in Westminster on Monday evening, raising the prospect of a Jeremy Corbyn-led government to appeal for Tory unity on Brexit.

The two resignations have left May badly exposed and raised questions over whether she will stand firm in her commitment to pursuing a "business-friendly" Brexit, or will be faced with more resignations and calls to quit herself.

The vision for future U.K. -EU economic ties will be detailed in a so-called "white paper" today that the government is scheduled to publish.

Mr Watson said Labour was keeping the option of a second Brexit referendum open in the case that Parliament could not decide a way forward, though he stressed that this route was "highly, highly unlikely".
