The statement comes after MPs voted in favour of Conservative backbencher Sir Graham Brady's amendment to seek "alternative arrangements" to the backstop, which is created to prevent a hard border on the island of Ireland.

The plan has been put in place in the event of Brexit riots.

BRITAIN'S THE SUNDAY TIMES, quoting a source from the Cabinet Office.

Nissan has cancelled plans to make its X-Trail SUV in the United Kingdom - a sharp blow to Brexit supporters, who had fought to have the model built in northern England.

He said the announcement would be "interpreted by a lot of people as a decision related to Brexit" and that "uncertainty around the UK's future relationship with the European Union is not helping companies like ours to plan for the future".

Number 10 said the working group was set up following "significant support" for the so-called "Malthouse Compromise" - named after housing minister Kit Malthouse who encouraged talks between different groups of MPs.

Writing in the Sunday Times, Mr Coveney added: "The EU will not renegotiate the withdrawal agreement and there will be no withdrawal agreement without the backstop".

"I'm determined to deliver Brexit, and determined to deliver on time - on 29 March 2019".

Warnings of the consequences of a no-deal Brexit intensified last week as several multinational firms, including Airbus and Ford said jobs could suffer with an unfavourable negotiating outcome.

Cook County's medical examiner's office said there had been four confirmed cold-related death this week in the Chicago area. Milwaukee's low was minus 25 degrees (minus 31 Celsius), and Minneapolis recorded minus 24 degrees (minus 31 Celsius).

"Are they really saying that they would rather not negotiate and end up in a "no-deal" position?"

"I hope our meetings with Government are as constructive as they should be because Malthouse is the only game in town if we are to achieve a deal".

The plans were originally meant to be put into action in the event of a nuclear attack from the erstwhile Soviet Union, "The Sunday Times" reported.

Nissan had previously announced plans to build the model at its plant in Sunderland after the British government sent a letter of undisclosed reassurances in 2016 after the Brexit vote about the company's ability to compete in the future.

May called an election at short notice in 2017 at which she lost her party's majority, leaving her reliant on a small Northern Irish party to govern.

"[They] have now been repurposed in the event of civil disorder following a no-deal Brexit", the source told the paper.

Mr Javid told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "They have shown me quite clearly you can have no hard border on the island of Ireland and you can use existing technology". It is perfectly possible, the only thing missing is a bit of goodwill on the European Union side'.

But Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said there were "no credible alternative arrangements".

Ireland's Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney warned that there are "no credible alternative arrangements" and said the United Kingdom is risking its peace process with Ireland by trying to renegotiate the Withdrawal Agreement.
