Downing Street was reportedly preparing to discuss a mysterious third customs model for post-Brexit trade with the Cabinet in a bid to overcome disagreement on the issue.

Chancellor Philip Hammond, viewed as one of the Cabinet ministers favouring a soft Brexit, told the Commons: "We have to listen to what business is telling us and make sure that we deliver a Brexit which delivers the needs of business".

He hoped the white paper would bring "the necessary clarity, realism and impetus to these negotiations".
