Her minority government could easily be defeated on the customs issue if pro-Brussels Tories back the Labour Party and other anti-Brexit MPs, as well as on 14 other amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill from Peers.

"I am trying to negotiate the best deal for Britain", she said according to The Times.

The resignation comes as the Commons prepare to take part in crunch votes on the Brexit bill.

Hours before the debate started, a justice minister who has always been critical of the handling of Brexit, resigned in protest at what he called the government's "wish to limit" the role of lawmakers in shaping Brexit and said he would vote against the prime minister.

The Democratic Unionist Party has said it will be supporting the government in a series of crucial Brexit votes over the next two days at Westminster.

May, who lost her party's majority at an ill-judged election a year ago, made a last-ditch appeal to lawmakers on Monday and Davis sent a letter making the same case - vote against the government and risk tying Britain's hands in the Brexit talks. 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.


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

Other amendments from the Lords to be debated Tuesday include transferring the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights into United Kingdom law and one forcing the government to negotiate to remain in the European Economic Area (EEA) like Norway.

The Brexit Secretary warned that the UK's entire approach to negotiations with the EU is at risk of being undermined by amendments to its flagship EU Withdrawal bill.

The Government is against the plan, believing it sends the wrong message to Brussels regarding the UK's negotiating goals.

The current "meaningful vote" offered by the Government allows MPs to accept or reject the Brexit deal, but the proposed change would see MPs take control of the negotiation aims. MPs will vote on this particular amendment this afternoon.

"This isn't about narrow party politics", she told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
