May's Brexit plans 'dead' after Barnier blows hole in Chequers blueprint

United Kingdom Seeks to Remain Part of the EMA After Brexit

Mr Coveney, in London for talks aimed at restoring power-sharing in Northern Ireland, said that rather than talking about stockpiling, "we need to be focusing on the intensification of negotiations to try and find solutions and a way forward, as opposed to this tough stance that some people feel the need to take".

Mr Raab repeated his threat not to pay the £39 billion bill if a UK-EU trade deal isn't agreed, telling MPs: "If one party fails to honour its side of that overall bargain, there will be consequences for the deal as a whole - and that includes the financial settlement".

Prime Minister Theresa May has called her white paper proposals "a significant development of our position ... a coherent package", but the EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier questioned whether they were workable.

Mr Hammond also ruled out extending the Article 50 process to give more time to negotiate withdrawal from the European Union, after the Irish Government said it would back such a move.

"The EU can not - and the EU will not - delegate the application of its customs policy and rules, Value-Added Tax and excise duty collections to a non-member who would not be subject to the EU's governance structures", Mr Barnier told reporters as he stood next to UK Brexit secretary Dominic Raab. "Frankly, it would not make us a credible partner for future global agreements". But of course if we have no deal we will want to make sure that we're prepared at the border with the knock-on effects that that would have if on the European Union side they take the worst case scenario approach, which is frankly irrational. "We both know the clock is ticking - let's get on with it".

But he reiterated it was also increasing no-deal planning.

On a second referendum, Sir John told The Andrew Marr Show: "I mean, frankly, a second vote has democratic downsides".

Mrs May said that DExEU will recruit some new staff to work on preparations for Brexit, while a number of Cabinet Office officials will move over to the department.

Prime Minister Theresa May is trying to grapple with continuing Cabinet tensions over Brexit strategy as her top team of ministers meet for a special session in Gateshead on Monday. They will be supporting the prime minster with me deputising for her in the negotiations.

Mr Davis, who quit as Brexit secretary in protest at the Chequers agreement, said the PM needed to "start again" on withdrawal plans.

In an interview with Channel 5 News on Wednesday, May rejected the suggestion voters should be anxious.

"Without a real change in approach from the European Union negotiators we do now face a real risk of no deal by accident and that would be incredibly challenging economically", Hunt said.

The risks of not reaching a Brexit deal were underlined by Cabinet ministers on Tuesday.
