Dominic Cummings, one of architects of the 2016 campaign to leave the European Union, told ministers that Johnson could schedule a general election after the October 31 Brexit deadline if he loses a vote of no-confidence in parliament, the newspaper said, citing sources. "They promised to respect the referendum result and we must do". They want us to deliver what they asked for - and that is for us to leave the EU.
The UK is set to leave the European Union on October 31, with Johnson saying Britain must prepare for the possibility that it has to do so without a deal if the bloc refuses to renegotiate its exit accord and the European Union sticking to its guns, saying the previously-negotiated and thrice-rejected deal is the only option.
Mr Hancock, who had previously argued, when he was a candidate for the Tory leadership, that Parliament would not allow no-deal, said he had changed his analysis in the light of last month's votes.
The prime minister recently pledged nearly €2.3 billion-worth of funding for no-deal preparations.
Earlier on Tuesday a senior British government source said London was "ready and willing" to do a deal to leave the European Union if Brussels renegotiated the agreement, denying that a no-deal Brexit was Prime Minister Boris Johnson's central plan.
"I now don't think it can (stop no-deal)".
"I thought that would go through and in fact, the government won by 11", he said.

She admitted that if there was no deal, then that is when she and Mr Johnson "get into choppy water", but added: "His argument is you've got to have everything on the table in order to have a negotiation, I want those negotiations to succeed".
They include bringing down the government, via a vote of no confidence, and setting up a new government in its place, he said.
Former attorney general Dominic Grieve has suggested MPs would try to form a cross-party "government of national unity" to seek a fresh extension of the Brexit date from Brussels while Parliament works out what to do next.
It came as Mr Johnson announced a further £1.8 billion boost for the NHS in the latest of a series of announcements seen to to be preparing the ground for an early election.
One ally told the Times: "The bigger question is why Dominic Cummings, the de facto deputy Prime Minister, is so keen to spend yet more money on something that his boss insists has only a one in a million chance of happening". The only people who keep raising this point are journalists. Speaking to talkRADIO, the South West of England MEP said: "The Brexit Party isn't just an arm of the Tory Party - we have grown into our numbers". His overall working majority was reduced to just one after a special election last week and there's always been a clear majority against a no-deal split.
We need to remember the overall financial picture too.
