Britain nears deal with European Union in Irish border Brexit talks

However, Brexit-backing members of the committee pointed out the report was only agreed by those MPs who supported Remain at last year's European Union referendum, with five Leave-supporting MPs voting against its publication.

Mr Tannock also said he had been "rubbished on Twitter" by the DUP two years ago when he warned that the Irish border would present a problem.

A new report called existing proposals "untested" and "speculative". If the Northern Ireland party deserts her, May could be looking at the end of her term in office.

Their warning comes as the Irish border emerges as a critical hurdle in deadlocked negotiations, although one prominent pro-Brexit member of the committee branded the report's content as "old Remoaner arguments and fears".

Theresa May's government has maintained that there will be no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland once the United Kingdom leaves the EU. Ireland suggests this could mean leaving Northern Ireland inside the customs union with checks at Belfast and other ports.

The Brexit select committee has said that government suggestions that there could be a "frictionless border" with the help of new technology are "untested" and "to some extent speculative".

Ireland wants re-assurance from Britain there will be no regulatory divergence between it and Northern Ireland after Brexit, Foreign Minister Simon Coveney told BBC radio on Friday.

"It will be made harder by the fact that the Government's proposals, by its own admission, are untested and to some extent speculative". If that meeting produces "sufficient progress" on three key European Union conditions - a financial settlement, rights of expatriate citizens and the Irish border - then leaders could give a green light to trade talks at a summit on December 14-15.

"We're not where we need to be today but I do think it is possible to get to where we need to be over the next few days", he said.

Sammy Wilson's warning came amid pressure from Dublin for the United Kingdom to agree a special arrangement under which Northern Ireland would continue to observe the rules of the EU's customs union to avoid a hard border with the Republic.

Coveney said Ireland can not be asked "to leap into the dark" by the UK.

"They have to recognise that if this is about treating Northern Ireland differently, or leaving us half in the European Union, dragging along behind regulations which change in Dublin, it's not on".

Officials from the Democratic Unionist Party are considering pulling their support of the ruling Conservative Party, depending on how Brexit affects the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.
