"It is a fantasy to pretend we can have the freest and most frictionless trade possible with our largest partner when the government remain intent on pulling Britain out of the customs union", he said.

It laid out plans for a transitional customs deal created to prevent cross-border business coming to a standstill when Britain leaves the EU in March 2019, followed by a "new" and "frictionless" long-term customs arrangement, which DExEU Secretary David Davis hopes will come into effect in mid-2019.

On trade, the British document suggests either streamlining trade as much as possible between the two countries, or even an alignment of customs standards, negating the need for a border.

Labour MP Chuka Umunna, co-chair of a cross-party Parliamentary group on EU Relations, said: "As the Brexit negotiations go forward, it is crucial that Ministers take positions based on realism rather than wishful thinking".

A "no-deal scenario" with no agreement by March 2019 would mean duties and Value-Added Tax on trade with European Union countries.

The call comes after a UK Government paper claimed Brexit Secretary David Davis could ask the European Union for a temporary, two-year, arrangement after businesses asked for clarity on how trade would continue after Brexit.

"The customs union as it now stands has an impact on our ability to make trade deals".

Britain lost a battle earlier this year to discuss the immediate divorce and future ties alongside each other.


The EU customs union allows goods to circulate freely, with no tariffs between member states.

Officials in Brussels have made it clear that it is unwilling to begin negotiating a new trade relationship with the United Kingdom until an agreement is reached on the future rights of European Union nationals, and the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

The UK yesterday laid out its plans to leave the customs union in order to negotiate a new deal with the EU.

The government acknowledges this is an "innovative and untested approach" which could work because the UK's regime would "align precisely" with the bloc's.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said the transition period could last about two years.

The government is also expected to firmly reject the possibility of a customs border in the Irish Sea, which would mean all traffic between Northern Ireland and Britain would be subject to customs checks.

The document setting out the Government's negotiating principles for the border is being published 24 hours after the release of its position paper on the UK's long term customs arrangement with the 27 member bloc.

But during this period, it would also expect to be able to negotiate its own global trade deals - something it can not do as an EU customs union member. The Brexit Secretary said it will only be a temporary trade arrangement that will enable business to continue as usual while a final trade deal between both sides has been finalised.
