"There will be choices to be made within that, but we all want the same thing which is to arrive at a deal which works for the UK."

Tory MP warns EU withdrawal bill amendments is plot to destroy Brexit.

Housing minister Dominic Raab also rebuked his fellow Leave supporter Mr Rees-Mogg, who is the favourite to replace Mrs May as Tory leader among Conservative members.

Speaking to Sky News' Sunday with Niall Paterson show, Mr Raab admitted there are "inherent tensions in dealing with Brexit because different people take different views" within Government.

But he ruled out Britain remaining in "any form" of customs union with the EU after Brexit, adding: "If we were, we would have our hands tied in negotiating free trade deals with other parts of the world."

Offering his full backing to the Prime Minister, Mr Raab suggested Tory MPs should display "a team effort, a bit of discipline… [and] a bit of emotional intelligence" in order to focus on the "prize" of a Brexit deal.

Remain supporter Sarah Wollaston also used an appearance on the programme to warn Conservative colleagues off their "manoeuvres" against Mrs May.

"Undermining her leadership at such a crucial point in our negotiations is, I think, deeply unhelpful," she said.

"So I wish those Cabinet ministers that were out on manoeuvres would just row back, because what we need to be presenting is a united front."

Amid the continuing splits in the Conservative Party over Brexit, senior MP Bernard Jenkin used a Sunday Telegraph article to suggest "vague" and "divided" ministers had made life "impossible" for civil servants.

He wrote: "If the Prime Minister sticks to one policy and the Chancellor keeps advocating another, what are officials meant to do?"

Urging Mrs May to back a "clean Brexit", Mr Jenkin warned: "She can only command a majority in Parliament on her present policy".

The Prime Minister has repeatedly stated the UK will be leaving the EU's single market and customs union after Brexit.

Responding to the recent attacks on civil servants by Leave-supporting MPs, former head of the civil service Lord Turnbull accused Brexiteers of employing tactics similar to those adopted by German nationalists in the 1930s.

The crossbench peer told the Observer: "They are losing the argument in the sense that they are unable to make their extravagant promises stack up, and so they turn and say: 'Things would be OK if the civil service weren't obstructing us'."

Another former top Whitehall mandarin, Lord O'Donnell, accused Leave-supporting politicians of "selling snake oil".
