Customs deal on farming, food could ease hard border


Leo Varadkar, the Irish prime minister, wants to explore an ‘‘all-island of Ireland’’ customs regime for food and agricultur­e in talks with Boris Johnson.

Varadkar is keen to explore the potential of restrictin­g checks on meat and food products to ports including Belfast, Dublin and Rosslare rather than at the Irish border or the factory gate.
