He has beforehand indicated that settlement would be foremost by mid-November to enable time for the foremost ratification procedures.The Brexit deal is to embody the so-known as divorce terms, as neatly as ushering in a 21-month transition duration.

The BBC said Tuesday's meeting did not include all the ERG's senior figures and it had discussed possible scenarios depending on whether May was able to secure a deal with the European Union based on her proposals.

The EU is just as keen to get a deal done in time for the March 2019 exit date as the United Kingdom government, which we believe used threats of a "no deal" scenario as more of a negotiating ploy than anything else.

"I think anyone who was involved in that referendum campaign - I think it was a bad campaign on both sides - they're bound by all sorts of promises that shouldn't have been made, they carry the baggage of a awful process".

"I think that if we are realistic we are able to reach an agreement on the first stage of the negotiation, which is the Brexit treaty, within 6 or 8 weeks", Barnier had said at a conference in Bled Slovenia yesterday.

With just 200 days to go to the scheduled date of Brexit, Mr Baker said that the PM would lack credibility with Brussels negotiators if she tried to press ahead with her departure plan at the party conference without the backing of her party. "We have been involved in far more significant tumult than this". British politicians inside May's governing Tory party, as well as in the opposition Labour Party, are preparing to sabotage the agreement.

Mr Baker, a former chairman of the influential pro-Brexit European Research Group of Conservatives, urged Mrs May to negotiate a free trade agreement instead of the Chequers plan. According to two people familiar with the meeting, nobody spoke against the idea that she must be removed.

Under May's proposals, Britain will seek a free trade area for goods with the European Union, largely by accepting a "common rulebook" for goods and British participation in European Union agencies that provide authorisations for goods. Many ERG members want a more decisive break and oppose May's so-called Chequers blueprint for a soft Brexit.

May's soft Brexit platform sparked the resignations of her Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who quit the cabinet in protest in July.

A number at the meeting said they had already submitted letters of no confidence in May, the source told the BBC. One of those present said opposition to her leadership has hardened over the summer.

Connor Campbell, analyst at Spreadex said: "Though, of course, the content of any deal is the thing that really matters, at the moment the pound will take what it can get". He warned his Tory colleagues to avoid "any diversion or distraction" that would prevent the government from delivering on the 2016 referendum result.
