A rejection for Mrs May's deal could also boost the cause of campaigners calling for a second referendum.

It also said a Canada-style free trade deal with the European Union would not be a viable option as it would "not ensure the type of friction-free trade with the European Union that many United Kingdom companies with just-in-time supply chains need".

With the vote expected to result in a Government defeat, some Cabinet ministers have urged her to delay while others have already begun promoting the idea of alternatives. Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May's effort to win support for her Brexit agreement comes amid reports in British newspapers Thursday, predicting that Parliament could reject the deal by more than 100 votes.

In addition, the "plus" part of Norway-plus deal would involve a customs union with the EU, which, combined with the single market elements, would avoid a hard border with Ireland.

"The basic question we ask is 'why leave?' You might as well be sitting at the table and having a vote".

Another former leader Lord Howard said Mrs May would have "difficult decisions to make about her future and about the future of our country" if she loses on December 11.

"This paper appears to show the government were well aware Ireland will face significant issues in a no-deal scenario".

A cross-party group of MPs including Tory Nick Boles and Labour's Stephen Kinnock have pushed the idea as a way of delivering Brexit - the United Kingdom will leave the European Union - while maintaining the closest possible relationship with Brussels.

Meanwhile, Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would consider delaying Britain's exit from the European Union to negotiate a better deal if his party came to power. Far from healing divisions at home and allowing us to move on, this deal would carve out the battle lines of the future.

"If we go into government straight away we would start negotiating straight away. If it meant holding things a bit longer to do it, of course", he said.
