The Sterling Pound run against the greenback to settle at its highest in eight weeks around 1.2840, despite looming Brexit's deal vote in the United Kingdom parliament, largely expected to be rejected by lawmakers.

He said: "Four decisions need to be made: MPs should vote against no deal; they should vote against the Prime Minister's deal; the European Union should be asked to extend Article 50 deadline to stop the United Kingdom crashing out in March; and MPs should come together to support a new referendum on European Union membership".

While Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay said there had been "some movement" from MPs to support the agreement which is widely expected to be defeated, he said he thought that if it fell the Commons would eventually support something "along the lines of this deal".

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe warned on Thursday that the world did not want to see a disorderly Brexit and that he fully supported May's withdrawal deal.

But if Britain were still in the union when the new European Parliament meets in July then the United Kingdom could be expected to provide members.

She has since lobbied European counterparts over the deal's contentious "Irish backstop" clause in a bid to win over parliamentary critics.

Addressing workers at a factory in Stoke, where 69.4% of voters backed Leave, the prime minister will also say that if the referendum result is not honoured, people's faith in politics will suffer "catastrophic harm". "So we need to explore what those circumstances might be and have an opinion so that how we can proceed from there".

Mrs May urged MPs to "do what is right for our country" and back her Brexit deal, calling it "the "biggest and most important decision that any MP of our generation will be asked to make".

Warning that there may be no consensus in the Commons around any possible outcome, the foreign secretary told Today: "If this deal is rejected, ultimately what we may end up with is not a different type of Brexit but Brexit paralysis".

Mrs May is facing a heavy defeat on Tuesday as Conservative backbenchers prepare to unite with Labour to vote the deal down.

Two days before a vote in parliament on her Brexit deal with Brussels, Theresa May has warned of a "catastrophic" breach of trust if Brexit is thwarted.

She continued: "When you turned out to vote in the referendum, you did so because you wanted your voice to be heard".

A loss for Mrs May's would give Corbyn the opportunity to form a government.

MPs must take control of the House of Commons and ensure that a no-deal Brexit is avoided, the SNP's Westminster leader has said.

"So those on the Brexiteer side seeking ideological purity with a deal are risking Brexit, because there is a growing risk that events could unfold in ways that (mean) they are leaving the door ajar to ways that increase the risk to Brexit".

Ms Rudd said it was "right" for the government to make preparations for a no-deal Brexit, comparing it to wearing a seatbelt when driving a fast auto.
