The prime minister has warned Tory MPs they will undermine her negotiating position with the EU if they rebel on key Brexit legislation.

Ahead of the EU Withdrawal Bill's return to the House of Commons on Tuesday, Theresa May warned Conservative backbenchers against allowing House of Lords amendments to the legislation to stand.

Pro-Remain Tories are considering whether to vote in favour of peers' changes to the bill on their demands for the government to stay open to negotiating a customs union with the EU, and on a call for a beefed-up "meaningful vote" for parliament on the final Brexit deal.

Addressing a gathering of the 1922 committee of Tory backbenchers in parliament on Monday night, Theresa May said: "We must think about the message parliament will send to the EU this week.

"I am trying to negotiate the best deal for Britain. I am confident I can get a deal that allows us to strike our own trade deals while having a border with the EU which is as frictionless as possible.

"But if the Lords amendments are allowed to stand, that negotiating position will be undermined."
