These included seven Cabinet ministers.

European Council president Donald Tusk has indicated that the EU may be ready to offer a lengthy extension to negotiations if the United Kingdom wants to "rethink its Brexit strategy and build consensus around it". "Maybe I shouldn't let you do it, I'll just get you in trouble".

The pollsters also found a "limited appetite" for a "lengthy" delay should MPs vote this evening to begin negotiations to extend Article 50, with the sample of the general population supporting of a short delay (47 per cent) over a longer delay (33 per cent). A cross party amendment from Labour's Hilary Benn and Yvette Cooper with Tory Oliver Letwin wanted to cancel Government business next Wednesday was defeated 314 to 312 after Theresa May's deputy David Lidington promised MPs the Government would stage its own indicative votes after next week's European Union summit if the Brexit deal fails again.

Jeremy Corbyn lost an amendment that would force the Government to hold debates to find an alternative approach to Mrs May's Withdrawal Agreement. Despite the failure of the amendments, the government's main motion to revoke Article 50 passed with an overwhelming 412 to 202 majority.

Philip Hammond urged hard Brexiteers to consider backing Theresa May's deal when it returns to the Commons.

May will most likely make a third attempt to push her unpopular deal through next week, ahead of what looks to be a crunch European Union summit scheduled for Thursday and Friday.

"But I gave the prime minister my ideas on how to negotiate it and I think you would have been successful".

And he added: "I am very happy with the Prime Minister's deal". "Join us now in working through that compromise, because we think MPs, in the interests of the country, will put party politics aside and do that".
