"We need to warn the British government and call on them to put proposals on the table".
Davis said the government would allow parliament the chance to vote on a "withdrawal agreement and implementation bill" once it has secured a Brexit deal with the European Union, which both sides aim to do by late next year.
But it triggered an immediate backlash from potential Tory rebels. There'd be no time!
Mr Blunt said that Britain must progress with negotiations but it will also need to prepare the possibility of a "no deal" scenario.
Antoinette Sandbach told the Press Association: "The announcement is meaningless if, for any reason, the timetable slips beyond March 2019".
Her Brexit minister, David Davis, tried to head off some of that rebellion by offering the Commons a vote on the final Brexit deal.
"I can now confirm that once we have reached an agreement we will bring forward a specific piece of primary legislation to implement the agreement".
"Clearly this is an attempt to see off amendments that go much further than David Davis on a "meaningful vote" - it is vital the EU Withdrawal Bill is amended to provide for a proper not a fake meaningful vote before any exit day", he added.
Backed by Plaid Cymru and the SNP, the proposed amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill would have forced Theresa May to win the consent of the UK's devolved administrations before repealing EU legislation. "This agreement will only hold if Parliament approves it".
However, Davis admitted that if there is no deal agreed before the March 2019 exit date then there will be no withdrawal agreement bill and therefore nothing for MPs to vote.
And in a separate answer, he added: "It's a meaningful vote, but not meaningful in the sense that some believe meaningful (is), which is that you can reverse the whole thing (Brexit)". "Totally worthless to parliament, essentially trying to buy off people", Chris Leslie, a member of the opposition Labour Party and a pro-EU campaigner, said.
Earlier, European business leaders warned Theresa May that jobs and investment in the United Kingdom could be lost unless urgent progress is made in the Brexit negotiations with Brussels.
The Prime Minister's spokesman confirmed the meeting was taking place as part of "broad engagement that we've been looking to have for a little while".
