Instead, he called for Brexit to be delayed until a way forward can be found.

But a poll carried out for the People's Vote campaign suggests fewer than one in four voters support her Brexit deal.

Theresa May suffered a fresh setback in her efforts to win support for her Brexit blueprint after a survey uncovered strong support among Conservative members for a no-deal departure from the European Union.

Writing in the Mail, Mrs May said: "The only way to both honour the result of the referendum and protect jobs and security is by backing the deal that is on the table". "It appears those members are in no mood for compromise".

"Moreover, the Tory rank and file, it seems, are convinced that no deal is better than May's deal".

Iain Duncan Smith has said not a single job would be lost in a hard Brexit, insisting concerns fears of leaving with no deal are "nonsense".

By contrast, 57 per cent said their preference would be to leave without a deal, while only 15 per cent said their choice would be to remain.

"Only 29% of Tory members would vote for Mrs May's deal, compared to 64% who would vote to leave without a deal".

Earlier this week, a leading figure in the party said there is "no way" it would back the deal.

Also, the DUP, the Northern Irish party that props up Ms.

Only 11% of Conservative members thought the backstop made sense and should be part of the Brexit deal.

It found that 76 per cent believed warnings about the impact of a no-deal Brexit were "exaggerated or invented".

A clean Brexit COULD cause "disruption", which "could last some time", Hunt said, adding: "That is not something any government should wish on its people".

"Some 72% of voters now intending to support the Conservatives think the warnings are "exaggerated or invented" - a figure that rises to 76% among Tory members".

So, when Mrs May brought her Brexit deal to Parliament in November previous year, a meaningful vote on the deal was scheduled for December 11.

Despite May surviving a vote of no-confidence in her leadership in December, almost half (48%) of Tory members thinks she is doing fairly badly or very badly as PM and 44% think she should quit if parliament votes to reject her deal.

The government has said it is stepping up planning for a no-deal Brexit, which Brexit minister Stephen Barclay said on Thursday was a more likely outcome if parliament rejects May's deal.

"Professor Bale said grassroots Tories "are even less impressed" than Tory MPs".

"If some of those MPs can be persuaded to back the prime minister's deal, it won't be because they've come under pressure to do so from their local party members over the Christmas break".
