Barclay, a Leave supporter, was a minister at the department for health and social care.

Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg, the leader of a group of 60 pro-Brexit Tories, on Thursday said he had sent a formal letter demanding a vote of no confidence in Mrs May's leadership, with other lawmakers following suit.

"I know that Gibraltar has no intention of being a back door, but instead a centre of high quality financial services", Mr Barclay said at the time.

She added: "This is not a time for changing our leader".

The plans include "buffer stocks so that we have all the logistical capacity that we need to carry on running our business", said Chief Executive Warren East.

The draft withdrawal agreement for Brexit that Mrs May agreed with her cabinet on Wednesday has already been signed off by negotiators from both the United Kingdom and EU.

We will have to follow European Union rules on food products and goods standards under the plan, which will mean no free trade deals with the likes of America and Commonwealth nations.

"This is a withdrawal agreement which took the best part of two years to negotiate involving 28 countries, all of whom have their own particular concerns and interests", said Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

"I'll be going through the detail, listening carefully to all the different views by people in Dudley, reading all the briefing and listening to the experts".

Dominic Raab said that May has allowed Britain to be

She had managed to secure cabinet approval for the draft Brexit deal after a five-hour meeting at 10 Downing Street on Wednesday, but it was followed by a string of high-profile resignations.

Stephen Gethins SNP MP and spokesman on Europe, told the Sunday National: "With all wings of her party against her, it is abundantly clear that Theresa May has no chance of getting her deal through Parliament - leaving us all in political purgatory".

"It is tight and I accept that, and that is the frustration, that we have got right the way across the House of Commons, the frustration of why has the last two years have been wasted in the way it has, in the internal disputes within the Conservative Party, when there should have been these negotiations".

The automotive, aerospace, chemical, pharmaceutical, engineering and electrical industries would be hardest hit by a no-deal Brexit, Dieter Kempf told Funke Mediengruppe on Saturday.

French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe was blunter, warning that Britain and the European Union needed to prepare themselves "for the possibility of a "no-deal" Brexit".

May's staunchly pro-Brexit worldwide trade secretary, Liam Fox, also came to her aid.

The appointments round off an extraordinary week in which seven members of her government quit their posts, and a plot to oust her from power gathered momentum.

She said the left-wing Labour main opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn was "playing party politics" with Brexit.

Much of the reason he said he wouldn't support Theresa May's deal was because it was "vague" and did not say enough about workers rights and environmental protections. Instead, Mr Barclay - who supported Leave in 2016 - will focus on the domestic legislation to prepare Britain for its scheduled departure in March. She said: 'Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed. there is more negotiation taking place'.
