She told BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "What we'll be setting out over the next few days is a sort of assurances, is measures in three areas".

In a message also issued to her own party's Brexiteer MPs, Mrs May said: "We have got people who are promoting a second referendum in order to stop Brexit, and we have got people who want to see their ideal Brexit".

Pro-Remain MPs are targeting the Government's finances as part of a last-ditch effort to prevent a no-deal Brexit, taking inspiration from the United States government shutdown now suffered by Donald Trump.

May's party itself is divided over her deal, with many fearing that an insurance policy created to avoid the re-emergence of a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland could leave Britain subject to European Union rules indefinitely.

"I think some people within the People's Vote movement seem to think that their objective is to slap the Labour Party around", the shadow foreign secretary said.

The Prime Minister warned critics from both sides of the Brexit divide that they risked damaging the economy and trust in democracy by opposing her plan.

Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable and Green MP Caroline Lucas also tabled an amendment to stop the Treasury raising income or corporation tax unless parliament approved a deal.

Her views were echoed by her fellow shadow cabinet minister Barry Gardiner, who said it would "make sense" to call another vote if Labour won power and secured a fresh deal with Brussels.

Philadelphia thanked its benefactor with a 12-play, 60-yard drive on which Foles, the Super Bowl MVP last February, hit six passes.

"Most people seem to say that's not what they want to see, well they better make up their minds before we get to a week on Tuesday because that's going to be a very key decision-making point".

The main opposition Labour Party has also pledged to vote down May's deal in parliament and threatened to initiate a no-confidence vote in her leadership should MPs refuse to back her plan.

"We are pretty much where we were before Christmas, with the proviso that there's less time left". The government, for its part, has forecast a potential economic slump of more than nine percent in the wake of a no-deal Brexit.

In a letter published by United Kingdom newspaper the Mail on Sunday, May warned critics of her departure plan risk damaging Britain's democracy and weakening its economy by opposing her deal.

Under forceful questioning from the BBC, May said that there should not be a second referendum.

The poll of more than 25,000 voters was commissioned by the "People's Vote" campaign, which is spearheading an increasingly vocal push for a second referendum.

Both the Labour and Conservative parties" 2017 General Election manifestos ran on pledges to respect the referendum vote and leave the European Union; while Mrs May has been pushing MPs to accept her Withdrawal Agreement, a "no deal' Brexit - the default legal position if the lower house votes down May's agreement - is fulfilling the referendum result as Tory MP Peter Bone told Sky News's Sophy Ridge on Sunday. Removing those who are undecided, the split was 53 per cent in favour of another referendum and 47 per cent against.
