The PM is set to make a speech to business leaders about the Irish border
The Prime Minister will make a speech to business leaders which is expected to focus on the crucial Irish border issue.
It comes as Mrs invited Tory rebels into Number 10 in a desperate scramble to find a way to resolve the thorny issue of the backstop.
Hard Brexiteers from Jacob Rees-Mogg’s European Research Group (ERG) and remain backing former ministers will meet from today in what has been dubbed the ‘Alternative Arrangements Working Group’ (AAWG).
Downing Street said the group would meet “regularly” with Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay and senior officials.
ERG deputy chairman Steve Baker, former Northern Ireland secretary Owen Paterson and Yeovil MP Marcus Fysh will sit down with former education secretary Nicky Morgan and ex-cabinet office minister Damian Green to examine the feasibility of the so-called Malthouse Compromise.
