To be included in Brexit withdrawal treaty:
EU demands Northern Ireland keeps customs union and single market rulesThe European Union has formally called for Northern Ireland to remain within its customs union and stick to single market rules after Brexit.
The text states that if Theresa May cannot come up with a way of avoiding a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, Northern Ireland should stay aligned to the custom union’s rules and regulations as a “backstop” option.
The 120-page treaty, which is subject to approval from the EU27, proposes a “common regulatory area” with “no internal barriers” on the island of Ireland which would allow frictionless trade to continue across the border.
The proposals come as a leaked letter revealed that the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has privately admitted that Brexit could cause a hard border with Ireland. The same Boris Johnson privately told May that preventing a hard border should not be the main aim of the UK government.
According to a businessinsider.nl article, Prime Minister May is reportedly preparing a “robust” fight-back against the EU’s proposal.
