European Union officials warned to prepare for no-deal Brexit

Should she press ahead with the plans, it is likely the 10 DUP MPs will vote against the deal, as they do not want Northern Ireland to be treated differently from Great Britain.

European Union Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on Wednesday an agreement with Britain could be "within reach" next week, calling for decisive progress in the talks in time for a summit of all 28 EU leaders.

It comes amid informed reports that Mrs May will present the backstop agreement to her inner Brexit cabinet on Thursday afternoon.

The discussion is expected to include a commitment to keep the whole of the United Kingdom in an effective customs union with the EU after Brexit, but with a "clear process" of steps to exit. If you're the Prime Minister, you do have to listen to colleagues, ' he said.

The former Brexit minister, now a senior figure in the fight against the Prime Minister with the hardline European Research Group, previously said 80 Conservatives would be prepared to oppose the Prime Minister if her deal with the EU kept Britain too closely aligned to it.

Speaking alongside DUP MEP Diane Dodds, Mrs Foster said she had not yet seen a fresh text on the Irish backstop, a guarantee of no hard border on the island of Ireland, from the British government.

- Treasury minister John Glen backed a previous prediction by the Bank of England that around 5,000 financial services jobs will have been shifted out of London by "Day One" on March 29.

'We are working hard for the Brexit negotiations to succeed.

The negotiations are reaching a critical stage ahead of next week's European Council summit.

For industrial goods, he said it could be done by "market surveillance authorities" in company premises but he added that checks on animals and animal-derived products would still have to take place on the border.

Selmayr meanwhile "provided a brief update on the state of play of the Commission preparedness work and recalled the importance for all stakeholders to prepare for all outcomes and at all levels". "There is a strong shared self-interest in finding a way of maintaining co-operation on security, if that proves to be possible".

And he told fellow MPs: "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 on a number of promises in the manifesto and in the Lancaster House speech".

"But as far as security is concerned, it is very important in order to ensure the security of our citizens and safety for our countries to keep working together in the future".

Just minutes before the news broke that the DUP is considering voting down the budget, a Downing Street source was asked if Mrs May felt she could rely on DUP votes in parliament.
