Up to 12 po­si­tion pa­pers will be pub­lished be­fore Oc­to­ber, when the Euro­pean Coun­cil is due to rule on whether with­drawal talks – cov­er­ing mi­grants’ rights, the UK’s exit bill and the Ir­ish bor­der – have made suf­fi­cient progress to pro­ceed to the next phase: agree­ing the UK’s fu­ture re­la­tion­ship with the EU. EU ne­go­tia­tors have in­sisted that they won’t budge on the se­quenc­ing of talks, but by pub­lish­ing its pro­pos­als on cus­toms ar­range­ments and the Ir­ish bor­der this week, the UK is hop­ing to high­light how with­drawal is­sues are in­ex­tri­ca­bly linked to the fu­ture re­la­tion­ship.
