A majority of members of the House have said they would support a deal with changes to the backstop. As such, the Prime Minister will now take this mandate forward and seek to obtain legally binding changes to the Withdrawal Agreement that deal with concerns on the backstop while guaranteeing no return to a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.</p><p>There are a number of ways that we could do this, and the Prime Minister will work constructively with MPs to see how we could take this forward.</p><p> </p> more like this

It has always been the UK Government’s intention to address our commitments on the Irish border through the future relationship and these proposals show how we can do so.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We have engaged with this proposal sincerely and positively, and the principle of alternative arrangements has already been accepted by the EU as a way out of the backstop. The Prime Minister and President Juncker agreed that our teams should hold further talks to find a way forward.</p><p>The Government has delivered on its commitment to provide appropriate analysis to Parliament. The analysis, published in November 2018, focuses on the long-term economic impacts after the UK’s new relationship with the EU comes into effect. It does not seek to capture any short-term changes and does not account for specific factors relating to varying border arrangements. The analysis does not model the Backstop as it is an insurance policy which neither side wish to use; and if triggered, would be explicitly temporary. For the same reason it is not practical to model alternatives to the backstop.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Over the past months, UK Government Ministers and officials have met a range of stakeholders in Northern Ireland, including representatives of political parties, and made clear that while we are confident that we will agree a deal with the European Union, which remains by far the most likely outcome, it is the responsibility of the Government to continue preparations for the full range of potential outcomes, including no deal. As we do, and as decisions are made, we will take full account of the unique circumstances of Northern Ireland.</p><p>In the event there was no deal, the UK Government is clear that we must respect our unique relationship with Ireland, with whom we share a land border and who are co-signatories of the Belfast Agreement. The UK Government has consistently placed upholding the Agreement and its successors at the heart of our approach and we will continue to do so while safeguarding the integrity of the United Kingdom and respecting the principle of consent.</p><p> </p>
