MP have continued to scrutinise the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill amid mounting evidence of Tory unrest about Mrs May's approach to Brexit.

The government were "boxing themselves into a corner" in using the bill to specify the exact date and time of Brexit - 23:00 GMT on 29 March 2019 - he said, because the United Kingdom would be "hamstrung" if the negotiations needed to be extended at the last minute.

As MPs debated the EU Withdrawal Bill, the Prime Minister met with Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in Downing Street.

In a freaky twist, opposition Labour MP Frank Field proposed his own rival amendment to set the departure point one hour later at the start of March 30, 2019, but later withdraw it amid a lack of support.

The government said it would ensure legal certainty when Britain leaves the bloc in March 2019.

The debate continues on Wednesday, with the key vote on the Brexit date amendment not expected until next month.


Soubry is among several MPs - including father of the house Ken Clarke, former minister Nicky Morgan, ex-Attorney General Dominic Grieve and select committee chairs Tom Tugendhat and Sarah Wollaston - outed by the paper as preparing to vote against a government amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill which would see the UK's Brexit date enshrined in law.

Britain triggered the two-year Article 50 process of leaving the European Union on March 29 this year, but this can be extended if all 28 European Union member states including Britain agree.

The MPs later won support from Labour colleagues fighting against a hard Brexit with Chuka Umuna, the former shadow cabinet minister, saying the front page was "an ideological witch-hunt to bully Tory MPs to go against their instincts to do what they think best for our country".

After a heated Prime Ministers Questions session, Mrs May was asked by fellow Conservative to call for MPs to come together for the sake of Brexit.

Two others, including leading eurosceptic Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, are reportedly instructing May how to run Brexit.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon meanwhile has warned she will seek to block the bill unless changes are made to devolve more of the powers returned from Brussels. "But we want a proper Brexit, one that works for jobs and industry, that's what we're trying to get".
