United Kingdom still negotiating with European Union over Brexit backstop , says May's spokeswoman

Brexit - UK seeking previously unthought of 'third way' around the Northern Ireland customs border impasse UK 'considering third option' over customs dilemma

Addressing the problem of a potential hard border would "require more than just customs", the Taoiseach said.

She said the objectives were that Britain should have its own trade policy with the rest of the world, should have frictionless trade with the European Union and that there be no "hard border" with European Union member Ireland.

PM Theresa May today repeatedly pleadged that Britain would leave the EU customs union in 2020.

Theresa May has set out in broad outline to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar long-awaited new British proposals on post-Brexit customs arrangements.

Any extension would be "time-limited", they added.

However, Mrs May has won backing for the initiative from pro-Brexit Cabinet ministers including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

"However, Ministers have wasted months arguing amongst themselves rather than negotiating in the national interest".

Ministers are divided and any option would take time to implement.

Iain Duncan Smith said Eurosceptic MPs could accept a delay of "a month or two" for practical reasons - but making provision for it now was akin to "planning for failure".

But the move could create obstacles to business between Britain's Northern Ireland and EU-member Ireland.

He put down a clear marker on the single market which suggested that Ms May's proposals were narrowly limited to customs issues and would have some way to go to meet Irish and European Union requirements.

The UK authorities will inform Brussels about the willingness to remain in the customs Union of the EU after 2021 due to the unresolved Irish question.

Varadkar said that June's European council summit would be a key moment for the talks despite attempts by the Brexit secretary David Davis and others in the United Kingdom government to play down suggestions of a "deadline", the Guardian reported.

Downing Street claims the document will "include detailed, ambitious and precise explanations of our positions...it should set out what will change and what will feel different outside the EU".

Jacob Rees-Mogg, chairman of the European Research Group of Tory MPs, warned that Britain risked being left in "purgatory" in which the horizon would be 'unreachable'.

Maximum facilitation, known in Whitehall jargon as "max fac", relies on new technology and is thought to be a potential compromise that could win support from Conservative MPs.
