In June the Government set out its proposals for a Temporary Customs Arrangement. After Salzburg, the Prime Minister made clear that the Government would bring forward further proposals on the backstop, which it has done in the context of our negotiations with the EU.

We are working hard to agree a backstop which upholds the commitments both sides made in December, which would of course be published.
