DUP threatens to vote down budget over Brexit

DUP threatens to vote down budget over Brexit”

The party's 10 MPs have propped up the Tory government since May lost her Commons majority in the snap general election a year ago.

In a statement to the Commons updating MPs following a summit of EU leaders in Salzburg last month, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab denied the United Kingdom would stay in the customs union indefinitely, and said the government would "press our case" for an outcome that will "preserve the integrity of the UK".

She praised the former foreign secretary for his "positive" views on Brexit, as Mr Johnson pushes for a Canada-style trade deal with the European Union instead of Mrs May's Chequers plan, which he argues is only partially leaving the bloc.

European Union's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier takes part in the EU Commission's weekly college meeting in Brussels, Belgium, October 10, 2018.

Labour has indicated it will oppose a deal based on the Prime Minister's Chequers plan and will push for a general election or, possibly, a second referendum.

Speaking alongside DUP MEP Diane Dodds, Mrs Foster said she had not yet seen a fresh text on the Irish backstop, a guarantee of no hard border on the island of Ireland, from the British government.

He also stressed the EU's insistence that Britain must accept possible checks on goods moving between its mainland and its province of Northern Ireland, saying Brexit will trigger the need for customs, value-added tax and compliance checks with European Union standards.

- National Audit Office chief Sir Amyas Morse said it was "not impossible" that flights would be grounded if there was an "unfriendly" break-up with Brussels.

An announcement on what a possible deal could look like on the Irish border issue could be made as soon as Monday.

Barnier has amended the EU's "backstop" plan to try to minimise checks on goods coming into Nothern Ireland and make sure they take place away from the border.

Foster stressed that she wants to reach a Brexit deal and she is staying in Brussels for the next two days in order to try and find a solution that would be acceptable to her.

British security commissioner Julian King said: "There are some issues that will need to be addressed in the context of a future partnership, including on security".

Home affairs commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos said: "I don't know what will be the outcome of these negotiations".

"We are awaiting the detail of exactly what we are going to be asked for vote for".

But Mr Barnier's comments suggest there is still a long way to go before the crucial issues are settled.

Theresa May (pictured left in Downing Street today) is thought to be trying to unlock the negotiations with new plans for a "backstop" to avoid a hard Irish border.
