That does not leave long for contingency measures to be put in place should May’s bill do as expected and suffer a heavy defeat.

Asos issued an unexpected profit warning following a disappointing November. The downturn in the extremely popular online retailer suggests that the recent problems the high street has been facing have spread to online companies.

It is the lowest share price in the company since January 2015 and wiped £1.4 billion off the company’s market value.
