"And we will be relying on the good faith of the European Union to deliver the bespoke deal we have been led to expect".

The European Union have been adamant this is a take-it-or-leave-it deal and can not be renegotiated.

Asked about the situation back in the UK, Mrs May said: "The next nine days are a really important time for our country leading up to the vote on this deal".

May answered: "It will be a decision for parliament". 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.

The Conservative MP, who campaigned for Remain, labelled negotiations over Galileo, the EU's strategic Satellite Navigation system, "a foretaste of what's to come under the government's Brexit deal".

"The backstop and the proposed treaty keep the whole of the United Kingdom in the customs union, which allows the EU to set tax rates, with Northern Ireland in the single market too. Some things are set in treaties but no Parliament can bind its successor.we can renegotiate".

The pressure on the prime minister to work on - and disclose - a plan B, as a contingency against the expected rejection by MPs of her painfully negotiated Brexit plan, is building relentlessly and remorselessly. "It says we will be able to do those trade deals, and we will be able to do them with the USA and others".

Dr Fox, who insisted that Mrs May was "changing the public mood", appeared to suggest that some of his Cabinet colleagues may still vote against the PM's Brexit deal.

Mr Brown said: "Such actions on the part of the BBC are clearly not in line with the obligation to act fairly and leave the corporation open to the clear impression that you are acting on behalf of the Prime Minister's office, a position I am sure the BBC would not wish to be in".

She added: "The view I have had from farmers, employers and sector organisations and others in my trips around the country is that they recognise the importance of this deal and they support this deal".
