EPA Theresa May is facing mounting pressure to sack Tory MPs who supported a letter which could lock her into a hard Brexit deal

The letter says Britain should not pay into the European Union budget during a transition period, The Times reveals.

It goes on to insist that Britain should be able to sign trade deals straight after Brexit in March 2019.

A source involved in drafting the letter said it was aimed at the chancellor, Philip Hammond, even though Ms Fernandes is a part of his team.

A part of the letter states, "in short, when we leave in 2019, we need to make sure we are well and turly out".

Nicky Morgan, who chairs the Treasury select committee has lashed out at those involved in the letter.

She said: “It’s not fair for ministers to be heavily involved in backbench affairs when they are involved in collective responsibility."
