UK’s May willing to talk about an EU customs union: minister

LONDON : British Prime Minister Theresa May’s government is willing to discuss a possible customs union with the European Union in talks with the opposition Labour Party to end the Brexit impasse, a government minister was quoted as saying.

“The government is certainly willing to discuss a customs union, but a customs union would require to command a majority of support in parliament,” Scottish Secretary David Mundell told the Daily Telegraph.

Mundell, who was speaking after May secured another extension to Brexit, declined to say whether a second referendum had been considered in the talks with Labour.
