Some Conservative backbenchers could also vote against the government by backing a demand to reintroduce the working restrictions Romanians and Bulgarian, BBC reported.

The labor market restrictions were lifted at the start of the year.

A vote on this was originally due before Christmas, with some critics claiming it had been delayed to avoid a rebellion.

But support for this amendment to the bill is thought to be waning, with the focus shifting instead to the foreign criminal and human rights issue.

The rebel amendment enters the Commons on Thursday.
