He said the Government would review legislation put forward by MPs before deciding whether they would abide by it.

Anti-Brexit MPs from all the main parties are expected this week to launch a last-ditch bid to force Mr Johnson to extend the Article 50 process beyond the current Halloween deadline.

But, a split has emerged in Labour over the party's Brexit tactics.

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell is apparently at odds with the party's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer on the timing of a no confidence vote.

Shadow Chancellor Mr McDonnell made it clear that he will push for a no confidence as early as this week if the bid to delay Brexit falters.

Sir Keir said Labour will not allow Mr Johnson to take the UK out of the EU during an election campaign.

Sir Keir told the Andrew Marr Show on BBC 1: "What we’re not going to do is allow Boris Johnson, on top of what he’s already done, to say, ‘well, I’ll arrange things so that we crash out during the course of a general election, which I, Boris Johnson, may not win.’"

That came shortly after Mr McDonnell said that he wanted the Government to "bring it on".
