Clarity, urgency needed from London on Brexit: Irish PM

Clarity, urgency needed from London on Brexit: Irish PM

Barnier said at a press conference in Brussels after last week's talks that any solution on the issue of the border must be precise, clear and unambiguous.

If successful, this will mean the two governments will achieve the first of three options set out in an agreement in December.

Chief EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has warned that the UK's decision to leave the single market and customs union will mean checks at the border are "unavoidable". "Enterprise Ireland's Northern Powerhouse Report underscores the extent of the business and partnership opportunities for Irish companies, with the north of England, an area that is growing at a significant rate and outpacing all other parts of the United Kingdom".

The report was also hailed by the United Kingdom government's Northern Powerhouse minister Jake Berry, who said collaboration will drive the region's economy and provide a further export boost for Ireland.

The outcome would be of benefit to the Republic, and the remainder of the European Union countries support what Mr Barnier is proposing.

The EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on Friday that a United Kingdom decision to leave the single market and customs union would make Irish border checks "unavoidable". He added that he understands Mr Barnier's frustrations with the British.

He sided with the EU's hard-line negotiation boss, raging: "I totally understand Michel Barnier's frustration, we really need clarity from the United Kingdom".

"In the year's that's in it Taoiseach and given your media communications unit and the almost €6m you are spending on it this year, could we kind of ensure gender sensitivity when it comes to delegations", she said.

Mr Varadkar also denied that the Brexit deal struck late previous year had been oversold.

The Fine Gael EU affairs spokesman warned: "Any border and customs infrastructure is a viable threat to the peace process which is only 20 years old on this island".

"It's very much our view that needs to be stitched into the withdrawal agreement, the legal text of that agreement which is now being negotiated so that's very much on track", he said.

Speaking on ITV's Peston On Sunday programme, Mr Richmond said: "It is not alarmism". We commissioned it so that we can quantify the potential impacts of different Brexit scenarios, and get hard facts on what sectors will be most impacted by those different scenarios.
