Arch-Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg said May faced the choice of rewriting her Brexit plans or splitting the Conservatives and scraping through on the back of opposition votes. Critics say the move is a bid by a government to escape the prospect of more rebellions in the Conservative Party.
The Commons has been debating two pieces of legislation - on customs and trade - and there have been several attempts to change them by both pro-Brexit and pro-EU MPs. It prompted the resignation of Boris Johnson and David Davis from the cabinet, as well as the departures of Baker and a string of more junior ministers.
Fresh from her pyrrhic victory yesterday, the Prime Minister is to go head-to-head with Remainers over another Brexit bill - this time on trade - and her decision to start MPs' summer holiday on Thursday this week, instead of Tuesday next week.
A spokesperson for Downing Street said the proposals were put forward after discussions with other parties but added: "We are considering all of the representations which have been received".
If no compromise is struck, there is a risk the eurosceptics could vote against the bill in its entirety.
May warned party rebels on Sunday they should fall into line, saying wrecking her Brexit blueprint could result in disaster.
At the same time, the prime minister is also testing her plan with the European Union, as Brexit negotiations resumed in Brussels on Monday.Читайте также: Jimbo Fisher: 'I love Jameis…unfortunately he made some bad decisions'
The amendments undercut parts of May's Chequers agreement, a plan for Britain's exit from the European Union that some lawmakers said watered down Britain's future independence.
Some MPs are planning to vote for amendments that would tie Britain to a permanent customs union with the EU.
The most talked-about of the four amendments proposes to make it illegal for the British taxman to collect duties for the European Union without reciprocal arrangements, after May proposed that the United Kingdom would collect tariffs on goods heading for the EU after Brexit.
"The inevitable effect of the parliamentary arithmetic is that she will need to change it to keep the party united", he told BBC television.
Her gruelling schedule will begin with her last Prime Minister's Question Time clashes with Jeremy Corbyn until September.
The customs bill (officially known as the Brexit-linked Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Bill) cleared the Commons after MPs gave it a third reading by 318 votes to 285 - majority 33.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
