British #Brexit proposals on border are basis for talks: Irish minister

| October 4, 2019

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s last-ditch Brexit offer concerning the Irish border is the basis for discussions but not of an agreement, a junior Irish minister said on Thursday (3 October), writes Conor Humphries.

“From our perspective it is not the basis of a deal, but it is certainly the basis for further discussions,” Junior Finance Minister Patrick O’Donovan told RTE radio.

“There are some things that we would welcome, but some things we would have issue with,” specifically the prospect of customs checks, he said.
