UK


LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Theresa May will not face any ministerial resignations over disagreements over a failsafe policy to prevent a hard border on the island of Ireland, the BBC’s political editor said on Thursday.

“Senior source tells me there will be ‘more clarity’ on the time limit on the backstop – and will still be published today – but ‘nobody will be resigning from the govt today,’” Laura Kuenssberg said on Twitter.

Senior members of the British government will try on Thursday to agree a “backstop” plan for the Irish border when Britain leaves the EU following reports that Brexit minister David Davis opposes the current proposal because it lacks a time limit.
