UK PM May looking forward to full discussion with cabinet on Brexit

But eurosceptics in her party are determined to keep May to her word that Britain will leave the EU's single market, customs union and the jurisdiction of its court.

Business confidence and investment intentions will continue to deteriorate until Prime Minister Theresa May ends the bickering in her cabinet and delivers "urgent clarity on the practical, detailed issues that underpin trade", the British chambers of commerce (BCC) said.

Opposition lawmaker Hilary Benn, who chairs parliament's Brexit committee, said he thought it was "unlikely that the European Union will agree to outsource the collection of its own tax revenues to a third country".

The intervention by Mr Rees-Mogg, the leader of the pro-Brexit European Research Group of Tory MPs, sparked a furious backlash, with Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan accusing him of "insolence" in threatening Mrs May.

Conservative MP Nicholas Soames described Mr Rees-Mogg on Twitter as "all gong and no dinner".

Briefing Cabinet ministers ahead of the Chequers talks, Oliver Robbins is said to have painted a bleak picture of the situation, with a source telling The Times they came out of the meeting thinking "we were even more screwed than we were before".

But former Conservative leader and Brexiteer Lord Howard told Today: "The prime minister has made a series of promises, the prime minister has repeatedly said that we must regain control of our laws, our money and our borders".

Government to ban "gay conversion therapies"
Dawn Butler, Labour's shadow women and equalities minister, said: "Much of this plan is yet more reviews and consultations". And two in five LGBT people had experienced discrimination, such as verbal harassment, in the past year alone.

With the clock ticking towards a March departure date and passions running high, May is holding a meeting of senior ministers on Friday at which she will pitch a compromise third option, ITV political editor Robert Peston said.

"Everyone threatening Theresa May with chaos, revolt, resignations, and a leadership election if she doesn't do as they wish needs to think carefully about what might be the consequences of their actions", he wrote in the Daily Telegraph.

May's foreign minister, Boris Johnson, who also campaigned for Brexit, seemed to support the lawmaker by tweeting: "It's vital that all MPs (members of parliament) are able to air their views on Brexit".

There were hugs for May from Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte as she stepped out of her auto to talk over lunch in his official residence known as the Catshuis.

"This is meant to be a Government negotiating a momentous worldwide agreement not a debating society that has forgotten to impose a time limit on speeches".

"That way lies the deepest and most bitter national division for generations and it is the responsibility of a governing party to avoid it", he said.
