Despite this activity, the committee's report said there remained "considerable uncertainty" about the practical implications of no deal for United Kingdom trade links with the European Union and the rest of the world, transport connections and the status of the Irish border.
A fraught phone call with her Cabinet on Sunday saw ministers line up to challenge the prime minister over her handling of Brexit negotiations.
Under party rules May needs to win the support of just over half - 158 - to win a vote of no confidence, but many believe that she may not be able to continue as prime minister if more than 100 MPs were to vote against her.
Theresa May must clarify if the proposed extension to the Brexit transition period serves as an alternative to the EU's demand for a backstop, Sammy Wilson has said.
She said: "What this is coming down to, and it was clear yesterday in the House, is that this five percent that's left of the withdrawal agreement is all about Northern Ireland".
Negotiations on Britain's departure from the European Union are stalled on several issues, but primarily an Irish "backstop" both sides agree is needed to avoid a hard border between the United Kingdom province of Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, an EU state.
It is unclear from May's remarks how much progress has been made in this area since she last spoke with European leaders, but if this is the 5% of the deal which remains to be settled, then it may prove an outsized percentage.
The letters come as displeasure by some party members to the government's stance on Brexit negotiations grows.
After facing some of the fiercest attacks to date over her Brexit plans since again failing to clinch a deal at an European Union summit last week, May tried to calm passions in parliament where her strategy has angered eurosceptics and European Union supporters alike.
On Monday, she reiterated the position, stating that the United Kingdom might need to ask for a short extension "as an alternative to the backstop".

So another week of rest could do wonders for the wide receiver as next week we could get a more serious update on Black's return. The Wolverines can't move up too much, but they will have chances to do that against the Nittany Lions and Buckeyes next month.
An early offer of an EU-UK customs arrangement, note EU officials, also runs a risk of angering Britons who want to hold May to her rejection of a customs union.
For this to happen, 48 Conservative MPs must submit letters to the Party's chairman.
However a planned show of strength among the Brexiteers, who meant to rebel at a vote on Northern Ireland legislation in parliament later this week, was called off by the leader of the rebellion, former minister Steve Baker.
I am open minded about using a short extension of the implementation period.
Downing Street told CNN it would not be commenting on Mercer's interview. The Confederation of British Industry says a majority of United Kingdom firms are poised to implement Brexit contingency plans by Christmas, steps that could include cutting jobs, adjusting supply chains outside the United Kingdom, stockpiling goods and relocating production and services overseas.
