In an upbeat assessment, she will try to dispel suggestions talks have stalled after a series of setbacks.

In an attempt to highlight how much progress has been made in more than a year of talks with the European Union, she will tell parliament the government has reached agreement on everything from Gibraltar to future security over the last three weeks.

But Brexit minister Suella Braverman said her colleagues were "free to express themselves in the way they wish" and repeatedly refused to say she would back Mrs May in a confidence vote.

Taking the unusual step of briefing planned remarks to the Commons in advance, May will conclude that "taking all of this together, 95 per cent of the withdrawal agreement and its protocols are now settled" in talks that she has until now largely insisted on keeping secret.

LONDON - Theresa May will begin another unsafe week pleading with her MPs for more time to complete Brexit negotiations after Cabinet ministers revolted further against plans in a late-night phone call on Sunday. She'll be dead soon'.

Former Cabinet minister Theresa Villiers, a Brexiteer, said the comments about the PM in the newspapers were "disturbing".

"I don't think anyone can or should be able to do that".

Writing in The Sunday Times, Johnny Mercer says he "cannot continue to support an administration that can not function" on issues from Brexit to the Grenfell Tower disaster and the Windrush scandal.

Former Brexit secretary David Davis, who has been referred to as May's possible successor, stated in the the Mail on Sunday that she had "managed to anger not just Leavers but ardent Remainers as well".

She will tell MPs that since last month's fractious summit in Salzburg, "important progress" has been made on issues like security, transport and services.

Conservative MPs have demanded May appears before the 1922 committee on Wednesday night to be grilled on Brexit and the state of the Government, according to reports.

Tory Eurosceptic Nigel Evans said yesterday: 'My strong view is that she should come along and explain herself'.

With just over five months until Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union, talks have stalled over a disagreement on the so-called Northern Irish backstop, an insurance policy to ensure there will be no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland if a future trading relationship is not agreed in time.

Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, Mr Raab said Mrs May was now "considering extending the implementation period for a limited period of a few months, as an alternative to the backstop".

The language was condemned by Tory MPs on both the pro-Brexit and pro-Remain sides of the party.

"We are at the end stage of the negotiation", he added.

He said: "I think it's understandable there are jitters on all sides of this debate and we need to hold our nerve. The end is in sight in terms of a good deal, the prize we want", he claimed, as cited by Sky.
