  • Prime Minister Theresa May and European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker attend the European Union leaders informal summit in Salzburg Austria

She said there was evidence that Brexit was "dislodging long-held red lines about the union".

The European Council summit was initially pencilled in as the deadline for signing off the exit deal and securing a declaration on future relations in order to give the United Kingdom and EU parliaments time to vote on what had been agreed.

Brexit minister Dominic Raab voiced confidence on Tuesday that Britain and the European Union would make progress on their divorce at a summit next week, but again asked the bloc to meet London "halfway" on the most hard areas.

They are insisting any arrangement that would see the United Kingdom remain part of the customs union after the Brexit transition period ends in December 2020 until a permanent trade deal can be thrashed out must be strictly time-limited - something the EU has been resisting.

Mrs May, meanwhile, urged MPs across the Commons to act in the national interest and back a Brexit deal amid warnings that "decisive" progress is needed in the negotiations before a crunch Brussels summit next week.

Despite this Theresa May will face the Commons today amid intense Tory pressure to drop her Brexit plans as officials in Brussels gather to discuss their latest move in the talks.

"If we stay on our current trajectory we will go into the next election with the government having delivered none of the benefits of Brexit, with the country reduced to being a rule-taker from Brussels and having failed to deliver a number of manifesto promises and on the Lancaster House speech", he writes.

"The Prime Minister understands that position and I expect her to respect that position".

'My estimate is that there are at least 40 colleagues who are not going to accept a half-in, half-out Chequers deal or indeed a backstop that leaves us in the internal market and the Customs Union, come what may'.

The two parties have spoken out against borders being placed between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as well as in the Irish Sea.

Top EU officials sounded upbeat last week about chances for a withdrawal deal as soon as next week's summit.

"The Future of England Study", conducted by YouGov on behalf of the Universities of Cardiff and Edinburgh, discovered that fully 87 percent of Ulster voters who backed Brexit believe an "unravelling of the peace process in Northern Ireland" would be a price worth paying to "take back control" from the European Union, according to the Belfast Telegraph.

"I feel very strongly that we must honour the result of the referendum - we must honour the expectations of the British public in making that decision".

The Times said a group of between 30 to 40 Labour lawmakers could defy their leader, Jeremy Corbyn, and vote for a deal that May hopes to bring back by the end of the year.

Following on from positive remarks from European Council president Donald Tusk that an agreement could be reached within weeks, Ireland's deputy prime minister Simon Coveney talked up the chances of an accord.

It has rejected the European Union proposal that Northern Ireland stays aligned to the bloc's customs and regulatory rules, saying this would effectively carve off the province from the rest of Britain.

"What is on offer is a free trade agreement which covers Great Britain only".
