Brexiteers tell Prime Minister Theresa May to drop customs partnership plan



Theresa May is facing a demand from Conservative Brexiteers to drop one of the government's preferred post-Brexit customs options.

 
A 30-page document passed to the BBC says a "customs partnership" would make meaningful trade deals "impossible" to forge and render the UK's International Trade Department "obsolete".


It comes ahead of a key meeting of senior ministers on Wednesday.


They will discuss the different options to replace customs union membership.


The issue threatens to split the meeting of the Brexit sub-committee and could have long-term implications for the government.
