"A no-deal Brexit would be a disaster for British science and innovation and I urge our elected representatives to put the interests of the country first and get a new plan to prevent this catastrophic outcome".

The Bill aims to force the Government to extend Article 50 if a Brexit deal is not reached, according to The Telegraph.

The plan includes €50m (£44m, $57m) of investments to help ports and airports cope with new tariffs and trading terms in the event that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union on 29 March without an agreed deal and transition period.

Mr Corbyn, who yesterday lost a no-confidence motion against Theresa May, accused the Prime Minister of "blackmailing" MPs with a no-deal scenario so they would back her second attempt at passing a withdrawal agreement through parliament.

Labour, which is calling for a no-deal to be ruled out, said the move showed the prospect was a "serious threat".

The official People's Vote campaign also revealed it raised more than £100,000 in the 20 hours following May's Brexit deal defeat on Wednesday.

The Labour leader has set out his demands in a letter to Mrs May, in which he tells the prime minister: "I am disappointed that there have already been several briefings in which you continue to rule out a customs union".

The prime minister is holding cross-party talks on what to do next about Brexit following her crushing parliamentary defeat on Wednesday.

Legislators ripped up May's Brexit blueprint Tuesday by rejecting the divorce agreement she has negotiated with the European Union over the past two years.

Meanwhile in France, the government activated its plans for handling the effects of a no-deal Brexit, which Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said had become "less and less unlikely".

Representing Dutch farmers and agricultural producers who export goods worth more than €8 billion ($9 billion) a year, LTO Nederland said unhindered trade was crucial and called on the Dutch government to offer practical solutions.

The Chancellor said the European Union would not consider extending Article 50 "unless or until we have a clear plan to go forward" and the "large majority" in the commons are opposed to a no-deal "in any circumstances".

"It should be left there, it's a central point of a negotiating strategy".

The big conundrum is the future of the Irish border, an issue that received scant attention in the lead-up to the 2016 Brexit referendum.

May's deal was doomed by deep opposition from both sides of the divide over the U.K.'s place in Europe. If we don't get agreement, the law says we leave on March 29.

Supporters of a fresh vote, however, say a second poll could be held in a matter of months.

What is the possibility of a second referendum?

May has flatly rejected a second vote. Others suggest a general election should be called.

Aides later said that the requirement for an independent trade policy was incompatible with membership of a European customs union - something which Labour regards as essential.
