Johnson was recorded saying: "He'd go in bloody hard ..." A spokeswoman refused to comment on the leaked recording of the Foreign Secretary's indiscreet assessment of Brexit.
He attacked the UK Treasury (finance ministry) as being "the heart of Remain", describing as "nonsense" and "mumbo jumbo" its fears of "friction at the borders" and "short-term disruption".
Asked about Mr Johnson's claim that officials in the Treasury were working against the long-term gains of Brexit, Lord Howard said: "If there are people in the Treasury who are doing that then they shouldn't be doing that, and I deplore that". Boris has strong views on Brexit but so do I.

"It's so small and there are so few firms that actually use that border regularly, it's just beyond belief that we're allowing the tail to wag the dog in this way", Johnson said.
Earlier a spokeswoman for May had said the Prime Minister has confidence in Johnson.
A source close to Johnson said he was speaking at a private dinner "so it is sad and very disappointing that it has been covertly recorded and distributed to the media".

The proposal would see the United Kingdom match European Union trade tariffs temporarily in order to avoid a hard Irish border post-Brexit.
"As these comments show, he knows we're going to get shafted with a bad Brexit deal, he knows how much damage it will cause to our economy, he knows it will result in a hard border re-emerging in Northern Ireland, but he couldn't care less".
