The FTSE 100 index added 1.3 percent and the FTSE 250 rose 0.9 percent on their best day in ten days. Prime Minister Theresa May called on Britain's lawmakers to send a message to the European Union that they would support her plans to renegotiate the Brexit divorce deal. Retail stocks, led by a 5.7 percent jump in British American Tobacco after a rating upgrade, climbed to levels not seen since late November and were the biggest support to the main index.

The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) top share index was up 1.3 percent at the close with gains in mining stocks and big exporters helping it outperform the domestically tilted FTSE 250 (.FTMC) index, which gained 0.9 percent after hitting two-year lows on Monday. Trading turned volatile towards the close after reports said lawmakers had enough letters to trigger a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership, hours after German leader Angela Merkel ruled out further negotiations on Brexit. "It's virtually impossible to predict the outcome but we take a relatively neutral stance," said Nigel Bolton, chief investment officer of international equities at BlackRock.
British shares fell on Monday as a delay to a parliamentary vote on Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal threw the country's political future into the unknown, hitting the pound and domestically-exposed companies from housebuilders to banks. The delay to the vote which had been due on Tuesday opened a range of options for Europe's No.2 economy, including a disorderly Brexit, another referendum on European Union membership, or a last minute renegotiation of May's deal. Some internationally exposed stocks such as British American Tobacco and GlaxoSmithKline were lifted by the pound falling to 20-month lows but their gains were more than offset by a broad sell-off led by companies more exposed to the domestic economy.
British companies are being forced to pay more to borrow on international bond markets than their European peers as investors demand a hefty premium to compensate for a future hit to business and the UK economy from Brexit. Companies as varied as telecoms giants BT (BT.L) and Vodafone (VOD.L), security firm G4S (GFS.L) and the Royal Mail (RMG.L) are facing what can be described as a "Brexit premium", bankers and bond investors told Reuters.

Postal company Royal Mail (RMG.L) is set to lose its place in the FTSE 100 (.FTSE), while insurer Hiscox (HSX.L) is likely to join Britain's top stock index in a reshuffle next week, analysts said. Demotion from the blue-chip index would come just as Royal Mail heads into its busiest time of year, as Britons send millions of greeting cards to family and friends in the run-up to Christmas. The possible swap comes after Royal Mail unveiled a broad review of its operations as it battles to cut costs after reporting a 25 percent drop in half-year profit.
