  • Simon Coveney will present a range of legislative measures for a no-deal scenario

Barclay said the two sides discussed the proposed Malthouse Compromise under which euroskeptic and pro-EU factions in British Prime Minister Theresa May's divided Conservative party agreed London should seek changes to the so-called Irish backstop.

The issue of the backstop, in which the whole of the United Kingdom would remain in customs union with the EU if a new trading relationship isn't in place after the transition period ends, has dogged May in the Brexit negotiations from the outset - and is the main reason cited by MPs for not backing her deal.

Defence Minister Tobias Ellwood urged the Government to allow a free vote on ruling out a no-deal Brexit at the end of the month if Mrs May can not get her deal through the Commons.

The Irish government will not be "steamrolled" into making concessions on the backstop Simon Coveney has warned the British government. But we stand now at a crucial moment.

The Brexit Secretary is holding a new round of talks with European Union negotiator Michel Barnier and will discuss "alternative arrangements" for the Irish border backstop proposed by Tory MPs.

And Attorney General Geoffrey Cox will set out what changes would be required to eliminate the legal risk of being indefinitely trapped in the controversial Irish backstop in a speech on Tuesday.

"UK Parliament has made it clear that change to withdrawal terms is needed".

At home, Mr Corbyn is facing concerns that the Labour Party could split over Brexit, with some MPs increasingly frustrated at his failure to back a second referendum on the issue.

Mrs May also warned the United Kingdom could leave without a deal or an implementation period if Parliament fails to unite behind a plan.

"If EU/Republic of Ireland refuses then we are heading for no deal".

Jeremy Wright implied the insurance policy to prevent a hard border could be amended via a codicil, saying the "objective" mattered more than the "mechanism".

"Our party can do what it has done so often in the past: move beyond what divides us and come together behind what unites us; sacrifice if necessary our own personal preferences in the higher service of the national interest", May said in a letter to the parliamentarians. If there are other ways of doing it that are just as effective that perhaps we haven't yet explored then we will do that too'.
