MP have continued to scrutinise the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill amid mounting evidence of Tory unrest about Mrs May's approach to Brexit.
He said it was tabled "without any collective decision-making within government ... and accompanied by I think blood-curdling threats that anybody that might stand in its way was in some way betraying the country's destiny and mission, and I am afraid I am just not prepared to go along with that".
Asked if it was MPs' "duty to scrutinize that legislation, debate and consider amendments", the Prime Minister replied that was "right".
The Committee stage of the Withdrawal Bill, where MPs propose amendments, and the details of parliamentary bills are thrashed out, will take place today and tomorrow.
The amendment fixing the date of Brexit will not be voted on until next month at the earliest, and the Government survived the early skirmishes in the battle to get the so-called repeal bill through the Commons.
But critics warn it represents a power-grab by allowing ministers to amend European Union laws as they are transferred, while others see it as a chance to shape May s Brexit policy.
Nick then put the words of fellow Tory MP Bernard Jenkin, who said that anyone who votes against enshrining the date of Brexit in law must answer allegations that they want to stop Brexit.
A vote on that amendment was expected late Tuesday.
The EU (Withdrawal) Bill is a key part of the government's strategy for leaving the EU following last year's referendum.
The failure to achieve this majority means that May's problems, above all, are parliamentary.
