People protest outside Britain's House of Commons in London

Mr Hammond sought to increase the pressure on MPs to back the Government's deal shortly after Commons Leader Andrea Leadsom confirmed the vote is still scheduled for December 11 despite suggestions it could be shelved due to a lack of support.

It is unlikely that they will. Leaving aside the fact that the practical entirety of the Labour, Scottish National and Liberal Democrat parties will vote against it, the Prime Minister has lost the support of her main parliamentary ally, the Northern Irish DUP.

The Queen could have a role to play in the Brexit mess.

May launched her plan to get the public on her side two weeks ago in the hope that MPs would fall into line.

There is yet a third scenario, which involves May refusing to resign the premiership.

One of the PM's most senior ministers, Andrea Leadsom, suggested last month she would not feel bound to resign after losing a vote. "Domestic legislative tinkering won't cut it", she said on Twitter.

In a newspaper article, Jeremy Corbyn repeated that "all options" - including a second referendum - must be on the table if Mrs May went down to defeat next week.

Hammond said it would be "catastrophic" for Britain if it remained mired in the Brexit debate for years to come.

Theresa May and the Queen face uncertain times. Therefore, several scenarios are open once the rejection of the accord becomes a matter of fact. Or do they say throw it to the walls and lets have a general election? However, the Prime Minister rejected the accusation, saying the legal position had been set out clearly.

The Government was also "buying a large collection of refrigeration units so that those drugs that can be stockpiled, we will have a stockpile of".

If the United Kingdom were to encounter any delays, Hancock outlined they would likely take place across the short straits of Folkestone and Dover where "the frequent and closed loop nature of these mean that both imports and exports would be affected".

Among this group, nicknamed the "Paleosceptics" by journalist Tim Shipman in his Brexit book "All Out War", are former Tory party leader Iain Duncan-Smith, Bernard Jenkin, Owen Paterson, Bill Cash and Peter Bone.

"One thing that does strike me is it is very similar to the Euro. Whatever she does is certain to be controversial".

May does not need to resign for a people's vote to occur.

However, she refused to be drawn on whether it could be cancelled altogether.

"There are those who want to frustrate Brexit and overturn the vote of the British people", she said.

Minutes later, European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier declared there had been "decisive progress" - the key phrase signaling European Union leaders can convene a summit to approve the deal, probably later his month. The EU has heavily implied that the transition period could be expanded if the British government decides to bring the issue again to the voters.

During the first two days of debate, at least 15 of May's own lawmakers explicitly said they intend to vote against the deal, and British media have speculated that as many as 100 could ultimately rebel.

"I fear for our country if we set course now, agree to this deal and make the grave mistake of leaving the European Union, which has conveyed so much prosperity and delivered peace and a better country".
