However many MPs have criticised the newspaper for labelling them "Brexit mutineers".

On the eve of the debate, the government made an apparent concession to rebels MPs by promising a separate piece of legislation that would allow parliament to have a binding vote on any Brexit agreement.

The MPs were pictured smiling on the front of the Telegraph after they indicated they would vote against Theresa May's efforts to fix the date of Brexit on 29 March 2019.

MPs had their first chance to scrutinise the EU withdrawal bill, which would formally end Britain's membership of the European Union and transfer four decades of EU legislation into United Kingdom law.

But there have been hundreds of suggestions by MPs to change the way it is worded and the government only has a majority with the help of the 10 Democratic Unionist MPs.

Clarke labelled the proposal to include an exit date in the European Union withdrawal bill of 11pm on 29 March 2019 as "ridiculous and unnecessary", adding: "It could be positively harmful to the national interest".

Mr Hammond told BBC Radio 5 live the bill, which is now being debated line-by-line by MPs, was "the most important constitutional thing we will do for 50 years" adding: "We might as well do it right".

"It's not about frustrating Brexit, it's about getting the best economic deal for this country", he added.

MPs are scrutinising the withdrawal bill and deciding on amendments.

"My Parliamentary colleagues have honest suggestions to improve the Bill which we are working through and I respect them for that", Mr Baker said.

"But we want a proper Brexit, one that works for jobs and industry, that's what we're trying to get".

MPs will discuss the bill at committee stage for two days every week for the next month, scrutinising it line by line.
