A spokeswoman for the government said it was working to support "consumers and businesses in their preparation for Brexit". That's something European Union leaders including Irish Premier Leo Varadkar say they won't countenance because it would threaten the Northern Ireland peace agreement.

"Look at it from America's point of view: Britain has much less to give than Europe as a whole did, therefore less reason for the United States to make concessions", he told BBC Radio 4 earlier this week.
