"We will publish next week a White Paper with details about the proposals for our future relationship (with the EU), and that will include matters relating to customs and Northern Ireland", May said in the House of Commons when she faced a barrage of questions about Brexit.

FORMER Tory leader William Hague has issued a blunt warning to Brexiteers not to push their demands for a clean break with the European Union too far.

"This left the Conservatives out of office for 28 years".

Mr Leslie said: "It's getting completely ridiculous now. At Chequers [Mrs May] must stick to her righteous cause and deliver what she has said she would, she must use her undoubted grace to persevere".

North Dorset MP Simon Hoare said "the hectoring nonsense" and "blackmail" had to stop.

"The views of business, which is the great generator of employment and wealth and prosperity in our country, should always be taken very carefully into account", he told lawmakers.

But former Conservative leader and Brexiteer Lord Howard told Today: "The Prime Minister has made a series of promises, the Prime Minister has repeatedly said that we must regain control of our laws, our money and our borders".

"Ministers continue to work closely with business to understand their concerns, and by successfully negotiating the implementation period with the European Union until December 2020, companies can carry on trading with confidence on the same terms as they do now". "With less than nine months go to until Brexit day, we are little closer to the answers businesses need than we were the day after the referendum".

"Jacob Rees Mogg knows that", he said. Their personal finances may be insulated from the shockwaves no deal would bring, but ordinary families up and down the country would pay a cruel price. She was dogged, however, by questions about her plans and how she would unite the cabinet behind a strategy that could be the basis of negotiation with the EU.Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, attacked Mrs May saying that her statement was almost 2,000 words but barely mentioned plans for Brexit.

The list covers subjects including Value-Added Tax, tariffs, customs and regulations.

Their "max fac" alternative would, rather than scrapping customs checks, use now non-existent technology to minimise the need for them. Both have already been dismissed in principle by European Union officials.

Ministers have been involved in heated discussions recently as they tried to choose between two earlier models.
