Crucial week for Brexit

Asked what would happen if the Government lost the customs union vote, Mr Brown told BBC One's The Andrew Marr Show: "I think what will happen if the Government loses a vote is that there is potentially the chance of a change of prime minister, but I don't think at that point they will want to give up as a Government, and I think the five-year parliament makes it possible for them to survive".

With the Conservatives having a majority of just 13 thanks to the support of the DUP, it would only take a handful of Tories to side with Labour and defeat the Government.

"I think the big thing from the 1922 committee meeting is this - there is nothing that says unity more when you have to get two MPs, from different factions, to come out of the 1922 committee to brief the media and paper over the massive cracks between remain and leave Tory MPs".

"But the message we send to the country through our votes this week is important". I am confident I can get a deal that allows us to strike our own trade deals while having a border with the European Union which is as frictionless as possible.

The Brexit activist also suggested that voting against the Government's key legislation could undermine the work of British Brexit negotiators before the October deadline agreed to by both parties. On Wednesday, it will debate an amendment instructing the government to negotiate a customs union with the EU.

The Government is now expected to table its own amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill which has the backing of rebels including Nicky Morgan, the former education secretary.

"We all hang together or we will hang separately", Buckland added, in a plea for unity.

She told HuffPost UK some of her colleagues needed to "take a chill pill".

It is expected that Tuesday will see MPs decide whether Parliament should have the power to set the Government's negotiating goals if Theresa May's deal with Brussels is voted down.

The two amendments most feared by Brexiteers include keeping the United Kingdom in the customs union after March 2019 and giving Parliament a decisive say over what happens next a final Brexit deal is rejected.

Labour and Conservative MPs are bitterly split over Prime Minister Theresa May's desire to keep Britain in the European Economic Area.
