United Kingdom ministers to release Brexit position papers amid criticism

United Kingdom ministers to release Brexit position papers amid criticism

Philip Hammond, the chancellor, and worldwide 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.

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

Writing in the Observer, he said: "People say we must respect the referendum".

LONDON (AP) - The British government is fighting back against criticism that it is divided and unprepared for Brexit, announcing it will publish a set of detailed proposals on customs arrangements, the status of the Ireland-Northern Ireland border and other issues.

The British government wants to show progress so the broader negotiations can commence by October.

The survey which will hand Theresa May a huge boost grilled respondents over a series of conditions imposed on Britain as a result of being in the bloc, rather than being asked simply whether they support European Union membership or not.

In July, EU officials said progress was hard not because Britain had unacceptable demands, but because it had no position at all on many issues.

A British paper focused on "issues unique to Northern Ireland and Ireland" is expected ahead of the talks, but no further details of the proposal were provided on Sunday.

This week we're expecting to find out the UK Government's position on the border.

Free movement for Irish citizens in and out of Britain is expected to continue after Brexit, with the establishment of a Schengen-style area between Ireland and Britain created to resolve the border problem.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said Sunday the papers would mark an "important next step" towards delivering on last year's vote to leave the European Union. The first of these will set out proposals for a new customs agreement, it said.

However, pro-European Finance Minister Hammond and ardent Brexiteer Trade Minister Fox set out a joint position in the Sunday Telegraph that a transition period was needed when Britain leaves the European Union, but single market membership would still end and the interim period would not be used to stop Brexit.

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 Prime Minister Tony Blair has also called for pro-EU politicians from all parties to unite.

Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said in a tweet that the article was the "right way forward" and would "create certainty and a great new European relationship".
