MPs: Technology can not prevent the return of Irish border checks

Dublin repeats Brexit demands as Tusk seeks border deal

"We are in constant contact on these issues with the Government and during our discussions, we reiterated that United Kingdom-Republic of Ireland arrangements may be necessary as we exit the European Union", she said.

Britain in the coming days needs to demonstrate "sufficient progress" on three key European Union conditions - a financial settlement, rights of expatriate citizens and the Irish border - for leaders to give a green light to trade talks at a summit on 14-15 December.

The research conducted by the committee echoes concerns raised by the Irish government in relation to the border.

I view the so-called problem of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland nothing more than the Republic of Ireland using an opportune moment to capitalise on Britain's/Brexit's refusal to accept the European Union single market and customs union.

"We want the negotiations to move on to phase two so we can talk about our future trade relationship".




"On the question of the border, as I've said many times, the best and most obvious solution would be for the U.K.to remain in the Customs Union and Single Market", Varadkar said.

The party has warned British Prime Minister Theresa May that she may not be able to count on their votes, if she agrees to any Brexit solution that places barriers, "real or perceived" between the North and Britain.

European Council President Donald Tusk, who last week set an "absolute deadline" of Monday for May to demonstrate sufficient progress on the three issues, is due to fly to Dublin on Friday for talks with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar in a bid to break the deadlock.

Right now, the U.K.'s government is being propped up by a small party from Northern Ireland.

Saying Northern Ireland could not fall under any customs regime separate from that governing the rest of the United Kingdom, the MP's position is directly at odds with the Government's reported proposal.
