British Irish Chamber of Commerce to publish Brexit proposals

The British Irish Chamber of Commerce is publishing a proposal that they believe will ease trade relations post Brexit.

They're proposing a solution for trade between the UK, Ireland and the EU.

Details of the document will be published later this morning.

Meanwhile, Ireland's being accused of 'playing tough' over a threat to veto EU trade talks unless Britain provides border guarantees after Brexit.

The UK is pushing hard for trade talks to begin in the New Year but the European Union has said 'sufficient progress' needs to be made on the Irish border issue before that can happen.

Fianna Fail's Brexit spokesperson Stephen Donnelly says some UK observers appear increasingly surprised that the EU is standing firm..............
