May chaired a critical cabinet meeting on Monday morning, where she updated ministers ahead of a House of Commons debate on the next steps for Brexit later in the day, which will be followed by votes on a number of amendments.
For two years, Britain's departure date was set for March 29, 2019. If it is rejected again, have already been voted down twice this year, Britain would crash out without a deal. May scrambling to try once more to get it approved.
Britain's military said the command post under the ministry of defense was set up as part of Operation Redfold, a plan to minimize disruption in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
Its proponents argue that May's deal doesn't deliver what was advertised during the campaign and that Leave voters didn't know what they were voting for.
However, she voiced hope this might change in the coming days, warning the alternative could be a "slow Brexit" where Britain´s departure is delayed for a long time.
A no-deal Brexit on April 12 is becoming "increasingly likely", the European Commission has warned. The UK Government will still have a choice of a deal, no-deal, a long extension or revoking Article 50. "If it has not chose to do so by then, the option of a long extension will automatically become impossible". May presented a new plan. If not, the United Kingdom has until April 12 to tell European Union leaders what it plans to do - leave without a deal, cancel Brexit or chart a new path.
She said: "This is the first chance I have had to address the House since my remarks last Wednesday evening".
Prime Minister Theresa should quit her post whatever happens, rank-and-file Brexiteer Nigel Evans told BBC Radio on Monday.

"The best way through this impasse is the one deal that has been negotiated with the European Union that can be delivered quickly now", Hancock said, referring to the prime minister's agreement. May's minority government. She has been negotiating with the rebels and the DUP ever since the deal was voted down for a second time last week.
"I would also like to thank all of those colleagues that have supported the deal so far, and those that have taken the time to meet with me to discuss their concerns".
Government members would have to resign to vote against the deal, while some on the backbenches just want to see a deal done and the nagging uncertainties vanquished.
And as things stand, the expectation that the compromise deal will get through is low.
Michael Gove, David Lidington and Philip Hammond were all forced to come out and deny a looming coup against the prime minister over the weekend, after discussion around her possible exit date grew. An EU official reiterated that it wouldn't enter into mini-deals to make a no-deal more palatable, and its measures were unilateral and aimed at self-protection. Saturday's march is being considered one of the biggest anti-Brexit protests yet. The Council agreed to allow Brexit to be postponed until 22 May only if May's withdrawal agreement could pass a vote in the House of Commons.
Protester Phoebe Poole, 18, who was not old enough to vote in the 2016 referendum, said young people had gone to the protest "because we feel like our future has been stolen from us". "It is on their behalf that we are writing to you to ask you to change your Brexit approach".
