The Leave-supporting Conservative MP, who was elected after David Cameron stepped down following the Brexit vote, is the latest official to resign over Mrs May's proposals for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

"Theresa May is in a more hard position than I was", he told ITV News.

May is battling to unite her Conservative Party around her Brexit blueprint, which was formally unveiled last week following months of Cabinet infighting.

A 10th member of her government quit on Monday in order to vote against her - this time in favour of a soft Brexit - and Mrs May needed the backing of three rebels from the opposition Labour Party to win.

Brexit will be the focus of intense scrutiny from the other political parties.

If the new clause, put forward by Conservative MP Stephen Hammond, has succeeded, it would have meant the British government having to negotiate Britain's participation in a custom's union with the EU if it couldn't agree a free trade area deal with Brussels. This compromise has blown up, not simply due to events in Britain but because these events have been shaped by the extraordinary antagonisms between the United States and European powers following the election of US President Donald Trump.

An amendment that would stop the United Kingdom from joining the EU's Value-Added Tax regime saw 11 Conservative rebels.

May survived a crucial parliamentary vote on part of her Brexit proposals on Tuesday, but the vote was the latest in which May's authority has been challenged and deep divisions within her own government laid bare.

The Israelis retaliated with live fire, killing a Palestinian teen and injuring 220 others throughout the day, Wafa reported. Israel has carried out its biggest attack against Hamas militant targets in the Palestinian enclave since the war in 2014.

The Labour leader looks certain to confront her over the turmoil in Tory ranks over her Brexit plans.

The battle over the amendments to the Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill, or customs bill, is unlikely to be the last that May and her team will have to face.

Meanwhile, the Electoral Commission announced that it was fining Vote Leave, the official pro-Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, for breaching spending limits and refusing to cooperate with its investigation.

He said: "The government is not proposing any equivalent scrutiny processes for agreements that will replace those we now have through our membership of the EU, this lack of scrutiny is a major issue and we raised the concerns of business, trade unions, civil society, consumers and many more at committee".

"Whether or not we get a trade deal now depends on how it is managed".

"We can't rely on anything", said Warren East, CEO of United Kingdom engine maker Rolls Royce, who said his firm could start stockpiling parts soon if it looked like Britain was heading toward a disorderly exit from the EU.

The government's White Paper on Brexit has promised to maintain a frictionless border in Ireland. Labour has previously abstained on some Brexit legislation votes, but ahead of Monday's vote on the European Union tariffs amendment changed its vote to one of opposing the hard-Brexit amendment.

Former trade minister Greg Hands said Labour was "barking up the wrong tree" with their concerns as the legislation was dealing with existing agreements that have already been scrutinised.
