The direct consequences of that, she added would see main opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn moving into 10 Downing Street as a Labour prime minister.

International Trade Secretary Liam Fox said the Chequers agreement was created to be a "credible offer" to Brussels to allow negotiations to make progress.

Bernard Jenkin said the European Research Group - led by influential Eurosceptic Jacob Rees-Mogg - did not expect more resignations and backed Mrs May's leadership.

Tuesday started as a "business as usual" for May as she chaired the first meeting of her new look cabinet following her reshuffle prompted by the resignations.

May's supporters are now reported to be anxious that more ministers could go and a no-confidence vote could be triggered.

The four-day trip, which will include talks with Prime Minister Theresa May, tea with Queen Elizabeth II and a private weekend in Scotland, is set to be greeted by a leftist-organised mass protest in London on Friday.

"There is a whole range of scenarios in which they get no Brexit, or an indefinitely delayed Brexit, or a change of government or a second referendum".

Under Conservative Party rules, a confidence vote in a leader can be triggered if 15 per cent of Conservative lawmakers - now 48 - write a letter requesting one.

Mr Buckland added that there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately". This policy will be bad for our country and bad for the party.

"The Chequers deal.is there because it delivers on the vote that people gave", May told reporters upon arrival at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, referring to a deal brokered at the prime minister's country residence last week.

He made clear that he had not submitted a letter of no confidence and expected Mrs May to remain at least until the official date of Brexit in March 2019. Speaking as he signed a joint EU-NATO declaration with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Tusk was apparently alluding to Trump's upcoming meeting with Vladimir Putin when he said "it is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem".

Ministers also stepped up preparations for a "no deal" on Brexit as Brussels will be reluctant to consider any plan which would risk splitting the single market. But he stressed his government will not give a detailed response until after the publication of the UK's Brexit White Paper.

"Dreaming is good, probably for all of us, but we have to deal with the real world", he said.

Meanwhile, Justice Secretary David Gauke warned Tory Eurosceptics that a "no deal" Brexit was "not an attractive option at all".

He said: "Actually, despite all the political movement and challenges in Westminster, I think this has been a good week for Brexit". He tweeted the Prime Minister "doesn't have a majority for it and there's no reason why we'd vote for a hard Brexit for services".

The resignations rocked May in a week that includes a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit starting Wednesday and a United Kingdom visit by US President Donald Trump from Thursday.
