Instead reports suggested she was preparing to press for changes to the Northern Ireland backstop in the hope she can win round Tory Brexiteers and her allies in the DUP who voted against her original deal.

Meanwhile, a senior member of Angela Merkel's Government, industry minister Peter Altmaier, warned against trying the EU's patience for political reasons. "We are waiting for the next steps from the United Kingdom government but we are ready to work again on the political declaration". "They should not be misused for party politics".

"It is now for the United Kingdom leaders to build a stable and positive majority for a deal".

The Irish backstop - an insurance policy to avoid the return of a hard border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland - is the most contentious element of British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal which was overwhelmingly rejected by parliament last week. "She's refusing to do so and I think she's hoping that Parliament will do this for her - that is not leadership".

Theresa May faces another tumultuous day in parliament as she presents her Brexit "Plan B", which will she her revert to earlier attempts to ditch the controversial Irish "backstop". "Everyone is saying same thing - we can't reopen the Withdrawal Agreement". "We can not continue negotiating something, as it has happened this time, and when everything is negotiated, the parliament rejects it".

"This is a negotiation between the European Union and the United Kingdom".

Downing Street said it is "extremely concerned" by the backbenchers' moves.

Heiko Maas, Germany's foreign minister, said that with fewer than 70 days until the United Kingdom was due to leave the bloc it was "about time" Downing Street offered a new plan that could get through parliament. "This is the moment for London to speak".

Here is everything you need to know about where the Brexit process is at.

The comments come after Health Minister Steve Brine told BBC Radio overnight that he would find it "very, very hard" to stay in government if the May pursued a no-deal Brexit. "Because it seems like everyone wants this and therefore it has to be possible".

Two men were arrested on Sunday over a vehicle bomb attack in Northern Ireland's Londonderry, with police linking the bomb to the New IRA militant group.

Mrs May's Good Friday plan would see the United Kingdom and Ireland agree a separate set of principles or add text to "support or reference " the 1998 peace deal setting out how both sides would guarantee an open border after Brexit, the newspaper reported. "That's one of the areas that we are going to be looking at".

Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney has ruled out Poland's proposal (see 12:20 p.m.) that limiting the backstop to five years could help break the impasse on Brexit.

Ireland's Minister for Europe Helen McEntee indicated little scope for a significant softening in the government's position.

"I don't think it is feasible, I don't think it is good", he said. A group of MPs are expected to present a bill on Monday which could allow Brexit to be delayed if Parliament does not approve an European Union withdrawal agreement.

"It is not up to us, it is up to the Brits to express themselves".

Lithuania's foreign minister, Linas Linkevicius, said of the withdrawal agreement that there was "no willingness to open the Pandora's box", signalling broader concerns that any further negotiation would result in some member states pushing for their own changes, and the deal swiftly unravelling.
