Late last month, the MPs voted in favour of an amendment that was tabled by Sir Graham Brady to look for "alternative arrangements" to the Irish backstop after the MPs turned down the Brexit deal of the Prime Minister by historic margins last January.
Nissan has cancelled plans to make its X-Trail SUV in the United Kingdom - a sharp blow to Brexit supporters, who had fought to have the model built in northern England.
The issue that has brought most opposition from members of parliament in her Conservative Party is the post-Brexit border between the United Kingdom and Ireland, but May, writing in The Sunday Telegraph newspaper, shed little light on how she meant to resolve it.
The head of government wrote in the newspaper: "I'm going to be armed with a fresh mandate, with new ideas and new determination, to agree to a pragmatic solution that provides the Brexit, the British people voted, and at the same time ensures that there is no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland".
The EU insists that the deal "remains the best and only way to ensure an orderly withdrawal", but with the clock running down until the March 29 exit date the risks of a no-deal Brexit for both Britain and the bloc are coming into sharp focus.
Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, May suggested that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had agreed with her that the Irish border backstop as set out in the Withdrawal Agreement had to change.
"It's 100 per cent untrue", a Downing Street spokeswoman said about the article, which reported that May's advisors were considering a June 6 election under a scenario in which Brexit was delayed past March 29 but May subsequently won parliament's backing for a withdrawal deal in April.
Members of parliament, who last month rejected May's Brexit deal with the European Union, have instructed her to return to Brussels to renegotiate the arrangements for Northern Ireland.
It would be irresponsible for the European Union to refuse to reopen negotiations over Britain's exit deal, British trade minister Liam Fox said in an interview aired today.
Opponents to Brexit were quick to seize on the Sky News claim, which the firm said it would not comment on.
On Monday, the House of Commons Brexit Committee is scheduled to visit Brussels to meet Martin Selmayr, the EU negotiator and Commission secretary-general, Sir Tim Barrow, the ambassador to the EU, and Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament Brexit coordinator.
"Are they really saying that they would rather not negotiate and end up in a "no-deal" position?"
She continued: "That is what parliament instructed me to do on Tuesday night". "That's what I'd like the most", he told Funke.
