According to a BBC report
Just ahead of the first major meeting today, senior Brexiteer MPs have reportedly delivered an “ultimatum” demanding PM Theresa May drops the government’s preferred post-Brexit customs options.
According to the BBC, a 30-page document says a “customs partnership” would make meaningful trade deals “impossible” to forge and render the UK’s International Trade Department “obsolete”.
Senior ministers will likely take a few weeks to decide a final position on the future customs arrangement with the EU after Brexit, a senior minister told media.
“I think we’ll have a useful first discussion today, but then I’d expect we’d come to a conclusion over the next few weeks,” Minister for the Cabinet Office David Lidington told Sky News.
He further said that May would stay on as PM even if she lost a vote on the customs arrangement.
