The flow of Brexit-centric headlines continues through the week, and the UK Times is out with notes on UK Prime Minister Theresa, who looks set to chain down her own Conservative party within the UK's parliament in an effort to push through a Brexit compromise.

It comes amid informed reports that Mrs May will present the backstop agreement to her inner Brexit cabinet on Thursday afternoon.

"The only votes that she can depend on as leader of the Conservative party are Conservative ones".

Some Brexiteers say those proposals would ensure the EU kept control over swathes of the British economy and thus run counter to the spirit of her manifesto pledge to leave the EU Customs Union and the Single Market. If you're the Prime Minister, you do have to listen to colleagues, ' he said.

Mr Baker told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that he was expecting Tory Whips to go to work on the rebels - but that around 40 of them would stand firm against her.

- Treasury minister John Glen backed a previous prediction by the Bank of England that around 5,000 financial services jobs will have been shifted out of London by "Day One" on March 29.

For industrial goods, he said it could be done by "market surveillance authorities" in company premises but he added that checks on animals and animal-derived products would still have to take place on the border.

- The International Monetary Fund said "growing anxiety" about a breakdown in Brexit negotiations could result in "contractual and operational uncertainties in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe".

But one European Union diplomat was upbeat, saying the divorce deal, or withdrawal agreement, could be concluded by Monday and that officials were working on a proposal to avoid Britain having to come up with a separate backstop plan as a possible solution.

Following the College of Commissioners meeting, two commissioners stressed the importance of continued UK/EU co-operation on security after Brexit.

British security commissioner Julian King said: "There are some issues that will need to be addressed in the context of a future partnership, including on security". If they jump the gun at the Budget before the Withdrawal Bill votes later, they're playing very hard ball indeed - and before they can know exactly what's going on in Brussels.

Just minutes before the news broke that the DUP is considering voting down the budget, a Downing Street source was asked if Mrs May felt she could rely on DUP votes in parliament.

Reports had suggested Mr Barnier would present a paper setting out new European Union proposals at Wednesday's meeting, but it is thought this has been delayed until closer to the summit date.
