She added: "What concerns me about the People's Vote movement is, as I've just said, is that instead of spending their time trying to change people's minds, they spend their time smacking the Labour Party around the head, some of them".

It comes hours after some Tory Brexiteers appeared to be willing to risk a no-deal exit from the EU.

On Sunday, Ms. May reiterated her opposition to holding a second referendum, saying it would be divisive and disrespectful to those who voted to leave in the initial vote, and also highlighted a lack of time available to hold a new referendum.

She said these involved new measures specific to Northern Ireland, a greater role for Parliament in shaping the Brexit process and further assurances from Brussels, with the last yet to be finalised.

The YouGov poll of more than 25,000 people indicated a second referendum is backed by 75% of Labour voters.

"At that stage it makes sense to go to the country and say "Here we are, this is what we have managed to negotiate...we think it's a better way forward", he told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show.

Labour's Yvette Cooper MP, who leads the group that includes former Tory ministers Nicky Morgan, Oliver Letwin, and Nick Boles, said, "Our amendment would block some of the Treasury's no-deal powers unless parliament has explicitly voted for no deal or unless the government has requested an extension of article 50".

May has been struggling to convince the DUP and hard-line lawmakers in her own party to support the withdrawal deal amid fears that the backstop could threaten the integrity of the United Kingdom or force the country to accept European Union rules indefinitely.

"The debate will start next week and it will carry on until the following week", she said. In December, May chose to postpone a parliamentary vote meant to ratify the agreement at the last minute after it became clear that it would be overwhelmingly defeated in the House of Commons.

Menon, however, argued the prospect of a second referendum being held remained slim. "If we have to have the vote 30 times, we will", they said.

"There are some MPs who are looking for an excuse to back the deal and so, something tokenistic and declaratory from the European Union on the backstop clause would work for them, but I don't understand how that would work for the DUP, and that's where the action is", he added.

Ms Thornberry said she believed another general election was the most likely way of breaking the current impasse on Brexit, adding that it could happen "within months".

"Most people seem to say that's not what they want to see, well they better make up their minds before we get to a week on Tuesday because that's going to be a very key decision-making point".

Mr Gardiner insisted that a Labour government would be able to get a "different, better deal" to the one secured by Mrs May as it would not have the same red lines.

"I think some people within the People's Vote movement seem to think that their goal is to slap the Labour Party around", the shadow foreign secretary said.
