Brexit transition would not be way to remain — Hammond and Fox

Stormont-castle

But Brussels negotiators have insisted there are three issues to be sorted before a new relationship can be discussed.

Two senior British ministers have written an article agreeing the United Kingdom needs a transition period to soften the exit from the EU.

Chancellor Philip Hammond and International Trade Secretary Liam Fox have come together to declare that a post-Brexit transition would not be a "back door" to Britain remaining in the EU.

The first set of papers will include one covering the thorny issue of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

"We've been crystal clear that issues around our withdrawal and our future partnership are inextricably linked, and the negotiations so far have reinforced that view". The two sides will be looking for a solution to those issues at the next round of talks due at the end of this month.

The decision to announce the publications indicates Britain's desire to counter criticism from Brussels about its approach to the talks.

That will come alongside other documents setting out how Britain's involvement in the customs union with other EU countries this week.

The Sunday Telegraph reports one proposal will involve offering Irish citizens free movement in and out of the UK. The Brexit department declined to comment on the story.

The British government has said it will give more details about its policies on Brexit next week.

The next round of talks is due at the end of the month, with both sides looking for progress towards a solution to three of Brexit's thorniest problems: how much Britain should pay to leave, what rights British and European Union citizens will have, and how to manage a land border to the bloc in Ireland.

The British ministers also promised a series of papers on their ideas for a "Future Partnership" with the EU to be presented in the run-up to October's European Council. The first of these will set out proposals for a new customs agreement, it said.

Prime Minister Theresa May will hope the intervention of the two ministers will cool temperatures in the Tory ranks amid divisions over Brexit and speculation of a possible leadership challenge when MPs return to Westminster in September.

Former foreign secretary David Miliband has used an attack on the ministers spearheading Brexit to call for a second European Union referendum.

The UK will leave the Customs Union and Single Market they said, writing in the Sunday Telegraph, but there will be a "time-limited" transition period with the aim of helping business adjust and to avoid a "cliff-edge".
