UK PM May has plan to offer Labour Brexit customs arrangement - Sunday Times

British Prime Minister Theresa May's government has a plan to enshrine in law a customs arrangement with the European Union in a bid to win over the opposition Labour Party to back a Brexit deal, The Sunday Times newspaper reported. "Under the new plan, the prime minister would offer to rewrite the government's withdrawal bill to enshrine a customs arrangement in law," the newspaper said.

May is trying to win over the main opposition party after her negotiated Brexit deal was voted down by parliament on three occasions. A Downing Street spokeswoman declined to comment. (Reporting by Costas Pitas; Editing by Daniel Wallis)
