The promise is a bid to avert a showdown on Thursday, when Parliament is set to debate and vote on next moves in the Brexit process.

"This new agreement lays the foundations for the two parties to continue their sound economic and trade relations once the United Kingdom has left the European Union", the Swiss government said in a statement. British lawmakers in January overwhelmingly rejected the deal she had agreed with Brussels previous year.

Yvette Cooper and Nick Boles, two senior backbenchers whose anti-no-deal amendment failed to gain majority support last month, have not yet made a final decision about whether to table a reworked version or wait until 27 February, the Guardian understands.

At the World Economic Forum in Davos last month, Fox said the United Kingdom had agreed "in principle" a free trade agreement with Israel, while South Africa separately said it was close to signing a deal with the UK.

Lambert's message comes after UK Prime Minister Theresa May met European Union leaders in Brussels on Thursday and announced that the UK and European Union negotiating teams would shortly resume talks.

In a letter to Jeremy Corbyn, she questioned his call for a customs union with Brussels, but offered concessions in other areas and said she wanted talks between Labour and Tory teams "as soon as possible".

A "hard" departure without a deal would see tariffs imposed at the border, "tangling up global supply chains", study co-author Oliver Holtemoeller said in a statement. It is likely that many amendments similar to those debated on January 29 will be proposed, including attempts to shift control of the process away from government and give parliament a chance to define Brexit.

But Labour's shadow Brexit secretary, Sir Keir Starmer, says he believes the prime minister is "pretending to make progress" on this issue.

Johnson told a meeting in parliament, "I think it must be pretty obvious that if you are going to have a time limit to the backstop - and I think that would be very good - it has got to fall before the next election".

The Office for National Statistics said the country's trade in goods deficit with European Union countries widened by 0.2 billion pounds in 2018 to a record 94.9 billion pounds ($122 billion).

May has been trying to win a legal assurance giving Britain the right eventually to drop the backstop and negotiate its own trade deals.

The Secretary of State for International Trade and President of the Board of Trade, The Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP, signed the UK-Switzerland agreement in Bern today (Monday 11th February) with Swiss Federal Councillor Guy Parmelin. He says May's agreement can achieve "a great deal of what Jeremy Corbyn is interested in without taking away that option of having other trade deals".
