A financial services brexit deal will be "imminently" secured with the European Union, according to minister John Glen.

But that has not stopped a flurry of concern from backbench Tory Brexiteers who are concerned the cabinet may be about to be "bounced" into agreeing to terms that they say could bind the United Kingdom into an indefinite customs "limbo" with the EU.

Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney has said the Irish position remains clear and a backstop that could be ended by the United Kingdom unilaterally would never be agreed to by Ireland or the EU.

The report by The Sunday Times (via Sky News) revealed that preparations for this deals are "far more advanced than previously disclosed", eventually leading to a document of around 50 pages being published.

The statement said that senior European Union figures like Donald Tusk, Jean-Claude Juncker and chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier "and indeed Theresa May herself" have all said there will not be a deal "without a legal guarantee of no hard Border in Ireland".

"The Tanaiste couldn't have been clearer that a time-limited backstop or a backstop that could be ended by the United Kingdom unilaterally would never be agreed to by Ireland or the EU".

British Prime Minister Theresa May has reportedly secured a series of "secret" concessions from the European Union that could allow the whole of the United Kingdom to effectively remain within a customs union with the bloc after Brexit.

'I am assuming the Government will stick to its manifesto commitment to leaving the customs union when we leave the EU'.

The EU has reportedly accepted that customs checks can take place at shops and factories, rather than at the border - which, if true, would remove the problem of where to put the customs border post-Brexit.

Theresa May is preparing a Brexit deal to keep the whole of the United Kingdom in a customs union with the EU, according to a report.

He said there was a "rapidly ticking clock" but that minds were now being focused with a view to concluding a deal and he welcomed that.

The paper also reported that the Prime Minister was on course to agree a future economic partnership that would leave open the possibility of Canada-style free trade deal sought by Brexiteers.

He replied: "Well, we want to get that deal, we're obviously working hard to see that that happens".

Speaking to Sky News on Monday on whether Theresa May can get a Parliamentary majority to pass her Chequers Plan, which would leave the United Kingdom tied to numerous bloc's regulations, Mr Farage said: "In classic Brussels style, at the 11th hour there will be a deal, I've no doubt about that".

But the government's Brexit department stated that they are confident there will be a deal that works for businesses - and reiterated their stance against a People's Vote. "Are we being hurtled toward a Hotel California Brexit where we can check out but never leave?"
