Britain submits its backstop alternatives to European Union.

SStephen Barclay, the Brexit secretary, warned that a “purist” approach on Northern Ireland would fail. Britain has formally tabled proposals for alternatives to the Irish backstop in an attempt to unlock a Brexit deal with the European Union. The written submission is understood to have been sent yesterday after talks between Boris Johnson and Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president.

It is understood to build on Mr Johnson’s earlier offer to create an all-Ireland food-and-agricultural zone with a regulatory border in the Irish Sea to protect the European Union’s single market. However, the EU is being asked to accept a customs tariff border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland without any physical infrastructure on the actual border.

A Downing Street spokesman confirmed the initiative, first reported by Buzzfeed News, but played down its significance.
