British Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab tabled the proposal during a "robust" meeting with Tánaiste Simon Coveney last Tuesday.
This would avoid the EU's "backstop" solution of treating Northern Ireland differently from the rest of Britain.
The Conservative MP said that Tony Blair's failure to publish his own government's legal advice from its then attorney-general on the Iraq war meant that the Labour prime minister's reputation "never recovered".
The Sunday Times reported that the EU would allow the creation of a whole-UK customs union that would avoid the need for a Northern Ireland border "backstop" that has been at the heart of the impasse in negotiations.
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.

She is instead pursuing regulatory alignment with the EU and a "backstop" which would keep the entire country in the Customs Union as a "compromise" - but this would effectively preclude Britain from regaining an independent trade policy after Brexit.
However, the newspaper also reported that the new deal will include an "exit clause" created to convince those who support Brexit that remaining in the customs union is only temporary.
In regards to customs checks, the deal is said to include an agreement by the European Union that checks on goods can take place at places of manufacture, or in shops, instead of at the border.
At the same time, the Sunday Times reported that the Prime Minister was on course to agree a future economic partnership that would leave open the possibility of a Canada-style free trade deal sought by Brexiteers.
Downing Street has insisted it does not have a deal ready for signoff, in response to reports over the weekend of there being an agreement in the making.
The Taoiseach also said the UK's withdrawal from the bloc had undermined the historic Good Friday Agreement that ended three decades of violence in Northern Ireland and called for a guarantee that there would be no return of a hard border with the Republic.
"This is the backstop", he added, saying the United Kingdom had agreed that it would apply "unless and until" a close future relationship eliminated any need for Border infrastructure and checks.
There is the prospect of a special European Union summit later this month if a deal on the backstop can be reached later this week.
