'Coming out of the customs union means that we will be free to have those deals, deals that suit the United Kingdom, ' she told the BBC on a local election campaign visit to a firm in the West Midlands.

According to the report, the PM and her top aides "will not be crying into our beer" if Parliament forces such an outcome on the Government.

The battle over customs rules is likely to reach a climax in a Commons vote as early as next month.

"We need to take back control of trade - that means leaving the protectionist Customs Union", Environment Secretary Michael Gove tweeted on Sunday.

She has said the United Kingdom would leave the EU's single market and customs union after Brexit in March 2019, noting the country may suffer new trade barriers as a result of her move.

MPs vote on a motion to compel the government to drop its policy on the customs union later this week.

May over the weekend not to abandon plans for a clean Brexit, and Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson are reportedly set to press the Prime Minister on the issue further.

The defeat - over ensuring the political, social and economic rights protected by the European charter of fundamental rights are replicated in British law - follows a vote by the Lords that challenged May's plan to leave the customs union, which increased pressure on the prime minister to reconsider.

It was one of two options outlined to minimise friction on the Irish border and allow Britain to pursue trade deals with third-parties during her address.

May has also said that any customs union deal with the EU would keep London from striking new trade deals with fast-growing economies like China and India.

May herself has been vehement in her desire for Brexit Britain to be a "global leader in free trade", arguing in her Mansion House speech that it would be a "betrayal of the British people" to stymie its potential by joining a customs union.

Mrs May is on record as saying Britain will leave both the EU's single market and customs union as part of Brexit.

Rees-Mogg believes that after leaving the union, the United Kingdom should phase out all tariffs, in order to reduce consumer prices and stimulate competition. It would also avoid a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Earlier this year, a leaked government report predicted that leaving the customs union would reduce the growth of the United Kingdom economy by up to 8% over the next 15 years.
