Mr Hunt's suggestion was echoed by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who said it was "possible" Article 50 would need to be extended in order to secure a deal.

Brady's amendment calls for the Irish backstop arrangement written into May's Brexit divorce deal, agreed with Brussels, to be removed and replaced with unspecified "alternative arrangements".

In the throes of the Tories' chaotic Brexit push, Theresa May insisted today that a crash-out is not inevitable, even with her party unable to come to a consensus on any alternative.

And Wirral South's Alison McGovern said: "The fact is, it will be a lot easier to invest in the coalfield areas and other towns if we stay in the European Union". The U.K. sends eight out of every 10 cars it produces overseas, with the European Union accounting for about half the total.

Brussels responded with a flat "no" to the House of Commons which backed the prime minister's plan to seek "alternative arrangements" to the backstop for avoiding a hard border in Northern Ireland.

Five amendments, including Labour MP Yvette Cooper's bid to delay Brexit if Mrs May does not get her deal through Parliament and Mr Corbyn's own amendment, were defeated on Tuesday.

"I also accept that this House does not want the deal I put before it, in the form that it now exists". And while the deal in its original form may indeed be dead, Conservative MPs have been formulating amendments to the withdrawal agreement in an attempt to win enough support for it to pass.

Meanwhile, Tánaiste Simon Coveney will use a scheduled visit to Washington and NY next week to drum up support from the United States for Ireland's position on Brexit.
