What is the EU customs union?

House of Lords inflict three defeats on the Government's Brexit Bill in one night

While numerous defeats were expected, it is the rifts over whether to remain in a customs union with the EU that have taken center stage.

May's inner circle thinks she could be forced to accept staying in the EU's customs union because Parliament will reject her plan to withdraw from it when the issue comes to a vote in the House of Commons, according to one official.

Davis said the difficult question of how to avoid a hard border with Ireland might still not be resolved when Britain leaves the European Union in 2019.

With these proposals - and particularly a desire to end European Court of Justice jurisdiction - Barnier warned that the United Kingdom is closing doors which could prevent the adoption of the wide-ranging free trade agreement that the EU is seeking from the departing country.

A customs union is a legal framework under which countries remove tariffs and custom procedures on each other's goods, and agree to impose the same tariffs on goods coming in from third countries.

Another senior British official said May's cabinet hasn't yet discussed what kind of customs plan it wants, but needed to reach a decision before a key European Union summit in June.

Former Conservative party leader Iain Duncan-Smith said: "At some point the Government will have to have a vote, and when they do I am sure they'll win it".

The EU's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier described the bloc as "flexible, never dogmatic" and "open for business." .

"It is now up to the United Kingdom to come up with its vision for the future, which should confirm the UK's red lines or adapt them". "We can never make compromises on these fundamental principles of the European Union because of Brexit".

Meanwhile, in what will be seen as a boost for May, the Cabinet Office said the British government and the Welsh regional government both confirmed Wednesday that they have reached an agreement on the European Union (withdrawal) bill that will be tabled in the British parliament. The UK is required to exit the EU Customs Union when it leaves the bloc, but the prime minister a year ago also ruled out striking a new customs union with the EU.

Leaving the custom union would likewise mean required traditions checks for each lorry between the United Kingdom and EU until the point that an organized commerce is hit with Brussels, conceivably causing major deferrals.

"If parliament asks for something impossible, then obviously we can't deliver on that", he said.
