Prime Minister Theresa May will pledge this week to give parliament another chance to voice their opinions on Brexit by February 27 as she tries to buy more time to negotiate a new deal with the European Union.
The government has signed a trade deal with Switzerland, heralded as the most significant such agreement in the run-up to Brexit.
The agreement is created to remove the threat of additional tariffs in trade between the two countries and to also to lift the possibility of additional duties on "the vast majority of goods". "There needs to be a day when Parliament says that's it, enough is enough".
The study by the Halle Institute for Economic Research found that jobs in the auto industry would be particularly vulnerable to the uncertainties created by Britain tumbling out of the European Union without securing a favourable trading relationship.
The impasse risks a chaotic departure that would hurt the economy.
The British government is seeking to win more time to secure European Union concessions on Brexit that could pass parliament and avert a chaotic split from the bloc on March 29.
Parmelin and Fox signed a bilateral trade agreement regulating relations between the two countries after the Brexit.
The EU has 40 agreements, covering trade with 71 different countries, that would need to be rolled over.
"Clearly there are those who believe that Brexit is the only economic factor applying to the United Kingdom economy".
Dr Fox says he has had assurances of support from dozens of countries around the world, but has so far only signed a handful of agreements.
The director general of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), Carolyn Fairbairn, said the lack of other trade deals being signed was an "emergency" - particularly in the case of South Korea and Japan.
"This new agreement lays the foundations for the two parties to continue their sound economic and trade relations once the United Kingdom has left the European Union", the Swiss government said in a statement.
The admission, seen by the Press Association, is contained in the minutes of a meeting attended by senior figures at the likes of Burberry, Mulberry and Hornby at a behind-closed-doors event.
