"We are absolutely clear on this: we're not considering Jeremy Corbyn's customs proposals, we're not considering any proposals to remain in the customs union".

"It is time for Dr Fox to face facts and admit this - particularly to businesses, who are in urgent need of proper guidance".

Together with a group of Labour backbenchers encouraged by promises of fresh guarantees on workers' rights and environmental standards, May hopes she can win over enough MPs to pass her deal.

With 45 days to go until Britain is due by law to leave the European Union, with or without a deal, the prime minister will address MPs about progress in the Brexit talks, No 10 announced on Monday.

He said: "You can't stop no deal unless you have got something else to replace it".
