Britain will have Brexit policies ready for June EU summit: minister

What now

"The supermarkets in Cornwall and Scotland will run out of food within a couple of days, and hospitals will run out of medicines within two weeks", an unnamed source cited by the Sunday Times said.

He added that the Government was making progress with Brexit plans, saying: "I'm confident that as we get to the June council meeting the Prime Minister will have a good set of proposals and our colleagues in Europe will respond positively".

Prime Minister Theresa May is struggling to find a proposal on post-Brexit customs arrangements - the biggest stumbling block so far in exit talks - to take into negotiations with Brussels as the clock ticks down to Britain's scheduled exit in March 2019.

'You would have to medevac medicine into Britain, and at the end of week two we would be running out of petrol as well'.

"I have to say I don't recognise any bit of that at all and, as home secretary, as anyone would expect, I'm deeply involved in no-deal preparations as much as I am of course in getting a deal", he said.

John McGrane, the Director-General of the British Irish Chamber of Commerce, dismissed the proposal and said it was too late to be floating "vague, unworkable" ideas.


'From the work I have seen and the analysis that has been done, those outcomes.

Referring to London's intention to create a "special economic zone" between Northern Ireland (part of the UK) and the Republic of Ireland (an EU member), Labor MP Virendra Sharma, a supporter of pro-EU Best for Britain campaign, said that "they [the government] are desperate for any solution, no matter how fantastical, to appease Tory right-wingers".

The border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and the rest of Ireland will be Britain's only land frontier with the European Union after it leaves the bloc.

Ms Foster told Sky News that a "red line" for the DUP is to ensure Northern Ireland is not treated differently to the rest of the UK.

'I have confidence that she knows she can not bring forward anything that will breach that red line or we will not be able to support them'. In light of the United Kingdom referendum vote to leave the European Union, we are reviewing decisions we previously made about some of our stations identified for disposal.

The concerns about potential chaos at Dover came after a decision by Highways England to announce plans to build "one or more lorry holding areas" in Kent "to reduce the congestion caused by cross-Channel disruption".
