“These are important essential things for Europeans and this is what our main job is.”

The EU has agreed “unanimously” to Britain’s request to extend Article 50.

He said: “April 12 is a key date in terms of the UK wondering whether to hold European Parliament elections.

“If it is not decided do so by then the option of a long extension will immediately become impossible.”

At the same conference, the Prime Minister expressed gratitude to MPs who have supported her deal.

Theresa May said: “I am very grateful to those MPs who have supported the deal, to those who have come around to support the deal and to all those MPs I have been meeting across the house.”

Mrs May also declined to rank her favoured options if her deal does not pass but did say: “I do not believe that we should be revoking Article 50.
