"If we can overcome those two issues, which I think we can, then we will be able to have substantive discussions", he said. Hunt also said it was too early to say if an extension to the Brexit process would be required.

One Labour MP involved in discussions said the focus was on securing guarantees that money that now comes from the European Union would continue to flow to hard-up areas after Britain leaves the bloc. "We will be leaving on March 29", the Prime Minister's official spokesman said.

She also wants to discuss a time limit on the backstop and a "unilateral exit" mechanism - both options ruled out by the European Union in the past.

The British tabloid papers declared Mrs May a victor after the House of Commons voted to remove the so-called Irish border backstop from the Brexit deal.

"The Prime Minister's position on this is unchanged".

Irish Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney said on Wednesday that Ireland will not be threatened into abandoning the backstop arrangement for the Irish border.

Downing Street hinted on Thursday at additional financial support for former mining communities as part of a programme of "national renewal" following Brexit.

Given recent polling showing the rising popularity of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union on World Trade Organisation terms - what critics call a "hard Brexit" without a negotiated deal with the EU and without paying the £39 billion exit bill - delating Brexit even further to avoid this outcome could prove deeply unpopular with voters.

She said: "It was a massive step forward for the Party to see a majority in Parliament also calling for such changes".

A militant group calling itself the "IRA" said this week it was responsible for a auto bomb which detonated outside a court house in the Northern Irish city of Londonderry in January, highlighting the threat still posed by groups opposed to the peace agreement.

The results found Warren had at least one Native American ancestor many generations ago. The test results suggested that Warren was between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American.

Meanwhile, the president of the Ulster Farmers' Union, which also supports the withdrawal agreement, said uncertainty following the rejection of the backstop on Tuesday night was "very damaging".

Angela Merkel will "go to the edge of the precipice" with Theresa May as the European Union prepares to reject any change to the withdrawal agreement in time for a crucial vote in two weeks. Theresa May introduced this Backstop idea to prolong the implementation period as an insurance policy against a hard border.

At least one Labour MP has welcomed the prospect of more funding for Leave-voting constituencies with John Mann telling the Government: "Show us the money".

But he said he had voted for the deal already, "so I can't be bribed".

"We are ready to talk", he said.

Parliament had been due to rise for recess on Thursday, 14 February and return on Monday, 25 February.

He accused May of "running down the clock" to a no-deal Brexit, risking lorries backing up near British ports, cancer patients left without vital medicine and price rises in the shops.

He replied that "this is an if", adding: "The vast majority, the vast, vast majority - all but a tiny handful - supported my amendment which I put down to the Government's proposals the other day in Parliament which outlined the three points that I made - and indeed I put those exact three points to the Prime Minister in the meeting I had with her yesterday".

"The withdrawal agreement will not be renegotiated", said Jean-Claude Juncker, chief of the EU's executive arm, the European Commission. "We said so after the first meaningful vote in the Commons in January", Juncker said, casting a cloud over Britain's latest move toward Brexit.
