Brexit Brief: Cross-party talks test Brexit ideas

The U.K. government and the Labour Party are “testing out” each other’s ideas in an attempt to dissolve the Brexit deadlock, the Prime Minister’s deputy David Lidington said.

Lidington, who is leading compromise talks with Labour, told the BBC on Sunday that the two parties had a “fair bit in common” over the future customs objective. However, he acknowledged compromise was needed, with Labour adamant the U.K. should remain in the customs union while the Conservatives insistent on the U.K. leaving.

Lidington said over the next 10 days the two sides would “take stock” of the ideas and although there are no deadlines in place promised the process would not drag on.
