"Do not underestimate how much I care about this because this is fundamental to our country and it absolutely breaks my heart to think that -after all that we fought for, all that we campaigned for, all that (Brexit Secretary) Steve Barclay campaigned for, everybody believes in - we should consign ourselves to a future in which the European Union effectively rules us in many respects and yet we have no say round the table in Brussels".

The PM has insisted she will seek parliamentary support for her Brexit deal on Tuesday, despite the opposition of a large number of MPs including a considerable proportion of her own party.

Another senior Tory backing a second referendum said: "There are people in the cabinet who back a second referendum, but they are riding several horses so they don't have to quit". If there was another referendum, I think we're better off in'. Hopefully they will have substantive talks, we have lots of ideas of the sorts of things they could do to improve were we are now.

"The outcome of that is that she'll have to come back to parliament again and hopefully this time with a deal we will accept".

Quince, 35, is the latest figure to resign over the Brexit deal.

Ms Rudd admitted, however, that she was not certain it could "be done".

"The withdrawal agreement we have will deliver the stability that we want, that our businesses need, the investment that we want".

The former foreign secretary said it was "nonsense" to suggest he had already begun offering jobs in a future Johnson administration to fellow Tories, but sidestepped the opportunity to promise not to stand against the Prime Minister. "I know that she will see us through this".

"And with these negotiations having not even having started yet, this could take years to sort out".

She said: 'Anything could happen'.
