In a clear warning that there is no other arrangement on offer if MPs turn down her deal, Mrs May said that defeat in the Commons would mean "there will be decisions to be taken by Government and by business in relation to the practical preparations they would be looking to make for no-deal". The person she most wants to sell the deal to is U.S. President Donald Trump because a trans-Atlantic trade deal has been held up as one of the greatest prizes of Brexit.
Hardline Tory Brexiteers may have failed to muster the sending of enough letters of no confidence in the Prime Minister to backbench supremo Sir Graham Brady a fortnight ago and trigger a leadership battle.
Speaking to a parliamentary committee, May was asked several times whether she would personally allow a disorderly Brexit to happen if - as looks increasingly likely - MPs vote down the deal she has struck with the EU.
Mrs May has said no, Labour says yes but only if it does not get a general election.
Dr Fox, who insisted that Mrs May was "changing the public mood", appeared to suggest that some of his Cabinet colleagues may still vote against the PM's Brexit deal.
The International Trade Secretary will visit the South West as he becomes the latest Cabinet minister to come out to bat for the Prime Minister ahead of the meaningful vote on December 11. "We will be explaining to members of parliament why we believe that this is a good deal for the UK", May told reporters on the plane to the G20 summit in Argentina when asked if she had a back-up plan.
"I think it is important members of parliament focus on the nature of this vote. It's a People's Vote, with the option of keeping the best deal we now have as a member of the European Union".

"The backstop and the proposed treaty keep the whole of the United Kingdom in the customs union, which allows the EU to set tax rates, with Northern Ireland in the single market too". Instead, what I see from Labor is an attempt to frustrate what the government is doing to deliver Brexit for the British people.
"I'm very happy to tell President Trump and others that we will have an independent trade policy, because we will have an independent trade policy, we will be able to do trade deals", she said.
We would question whether the current proposals - which do not in our view meet the requirements under Ofcom for due impartiality, nor ensure that an appropriately wide range of views are represented and given due weight in the debate (Ofcom 5.5 and 5.12 and 5.13) - are in line with those guidelines.
Mrs May earlier met the Japanese leader, Shinzo Abe, who urged her to avoid a no-deal Brexit.
She added: "I think what we have seen revealed in numerous Labour Party's comments is that what they actually want is a general election, and that means they are not acting in the national interest, they are putting their narrow party interests first".
He added: "It is a deal in name only".
