Talks between the opposition Labour Party and the government have not produced a breakthrough in the Brexit impasse.

These will be used to gauge the electoral impact that failing to deliver Brexit on schedule has had on May's Conservative Party.

If no deal with Labour can be reached, the government is proposing to put different options to parliament to find a workable plan.

Hunt said a continuation of the Brexit paralysis would be damaging to Britain's worldwide standing, adding that Japan was anxious the United Kingdom would become "submerged in the mire of Brexit indecision".

May has come under fire from MPs including former leader Iain Duncan Smith following her decision to agree an extension that would result in the United Kingdom taking part in European elections next month.

Britain is now due to participate in elections for the European Parliament. The support is the lowest May's party has scored since the European elections in May 2014, according to the pollster.

Former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith called Sunday on May to resign as prime minister next month.

"I think what matters is that we have a cabinet that believes in Brexit, and we believe in Brexit, whichever way we voted in the referendum, because we're all democrats and we think that there are great opportunities for this country, whichever choice it makes", Hunt told BBC Radio 4's Today programme from Japan, where he met the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe.
