No big progress on Brexit since March - EU's Barnier

No big progress on Brexit since March - EU's Barnier

Worryingly, this delay comes as formal negotiations are due to recommence next week ahead of June's major summit.

The Brexit schedule is tightening, sources said, which helps the European Union negotiating strategy to pile pressure on London before the June summit but mostly is due to lack of substantial headway in the talks.

Crucially, the White Paper will contain the Government's proposal for future customs arrangements.

It is discussing two potential options that have divided cabinet members. It is expected to flesh out ideas floated by the Prime Minister in her keynote Brexit speeches at the Mansion House and in Florence.

In another move, Labour is also attempting to force a binding vote in the House of Commons requiring the Government to publish Cabinet papers on the two customs options being considered by ministers.

The Foreign Secretary batted away suggestions that he should consider resigning, insisting that he regarded the PM's vision of a Britain outside the customs union as "the way forward".

Its Brexit negotiator says no significant progress has been made since March.

Asked about the issue on Monday, a French presidential adviser said there was no decision from the European Union to exclude Britain from Galileo, and that the current "uncertainty" was simply the direct result of Britain's decision to leave. "That clearly is going to cause difficulties for them", he said.

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

Glover reportedly turned her anger toward police, resisting arrest as they were attempting to put her in the squad vehicle . She faces a May 31 court date on misdemeanor charges of domestic violence battery and resisting arrest without violence.

"Whether those divisions can be resolved in the next month remains to be seen".

Ministers backed the decision to draft the document at the weekly Cabinet meeting in Downing Street yesterday morning.

It has tabled a Commons motion for a debate created to break the "deadlock" over the so-called "customs partnership" and "maximum facilitation" models.

Asked about when ministers would decide, Clark said: "There's a sub-committee of the cabinet that is looking at these things".

Meanwhile, the Irish Government is adamant there must be credible progress on the backstop issue by the June summit, otherwise there won't be a withdrawal agreement.

Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer said: "The Government's Brexit strategy is in complete and utter deadlock".

"Nearly two years on from the referendum, ministers have still yet to agree what our future customs and trading relationship with Europe will look like after Brexit".

The EU's Michel Barnier has called out the custom regulation on the Irish border as an area possibly fraught with a "risk of failure" for Brexit, while the UK Prime Minister tries to get her government and the Parliament on board with a united post-Brexit trade plan.
