"A big hit on our economy will mean an increase in local poverty, fewer resources locally to plan and deliver our services, no structured programme to support our local economies and real threats to all aspects of our import and export trade", she said.

"If they can not look their constituents in the eye and say it is, they must vote this deal down and then hand the decision back to the people". We will be telling MPs why we believe this is a good deal for the United Kingdom because it is a deal that delivers on the Brexit vote.

Gyimah said "what has happened with Galileo is a foretaste of the brutal negotiations we will go through that will weaken our national interest, make us poorer, less secure".

Asked which of those two options was more likely if her deal does not pass, she said: "We haven't had the vote yet".

Dr Fox said that reactions to Whitehall analysis showing that withdrawing from the European Union without an agreement would have severe economic consequences had been "overblown".

May's comments came after lawmakers proposed an amendment that could stop Brexit if Parliament rejected her agreement.
