"With fewer than 60 days before we leave the European Union and the risk of crashing out without a deal looking increasingly real, UK Automotive is on red alert", Hawes said.

Members of Parliament narrowly voted through two significant amendments to the Brexit plan: one says there should be no "no deal" Brexit, while the other demands the removal of the contentious "Irish backstop" from the withdrawal agreement struck between Prime Minister Theresa May and her European counterparts.

"But we still don't know what exactly the House of Commons is for".

The prime minister is also facing a headache at home with Labour, the DUP, the SNP, Liberal Democrats and close to 90 of even her own MPs opposed to her agreement.

Nonetheless, Ms McEntee signalled that Ms May would be able to postpone the Brexit March 29 date.

Brexit "pessimists" argue the opposite, accusing the Prime Minister of abandoning her own negotiated agreement to hunt a "unicorn" simply to put her shattered party back together - and Remainers have lost their best chance of delaying Brexit or forcing a second European Union referendum. "We will be leaving on March 29", the Prime Minister's official spokesman said.

But the prime minister's official spokesman said the government remained committed to leaving the European Union on 29 March.

Mr Corbyn also accused Mrs May of "promoting "Project Fear" as he attacked "shambolic preparations" for a no-deal Brexit as "too little, too late".

The backstop was one of the main reasons Mrs May's Brexit deal was voted down in Parliament by a record margin earlier in January because critics say a different status for Northern Ireland could threaten the existence of the United Kingdom and fear that the backstop could become permanent.

To this, Theresa May called for all parliamentary leaders to hold meetings with her so as to decide the course of things to strike a deal that would be acceptable to all.

A no-deal Brexit is the biggest risk the Northern Ireland economy has faced in a generation, Dankse Bank UK CEO Kevin Kingston said Friday.

"Our movement has been clear that working people need a binding guarantee for their rights, now and into the future", said the spokesman.

The backstop and the withdrawal agreement have been supported by business bodies in Northern Ireland.

Mr Mann, who was also spotted in Downing Street on Thursday, told the BBC the group asked for "a significant amount of money" for poorer areas, "so that we can actually move forward as we leave the EU".

May must report back to the House of Commons by February 13, either with a reworked version of the deal or with a statement on what she plans to do next.

"It is vitally important that politicians in Westminster understand the overwhelming wish across society in Northern Ireland not to return to the borders and division of times past", Coveney said in a speech, in a signal that the government in Dublin isn't going to soften its stance.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn warned Mrs May "there can be no more hiding and no more running away" with less than three months until the UK's scheduled departure from the EU.

"It is possible that there will have to be an extension in order to get an agreement because we can not leave the European Union on March 29 without an agreement".

She said a British request to extend the two-year Article 50 negotiation process would "most likely" be approved by the EU27.
