SKY NEWS•GETTYLord Hain slammed Theresa May's Government over the Irish border issue

But Brussels negotiators have insisted there are three issues to be sorted before a new relationship can be discussed.

BBC political correspondent Ben Wright said Mr Hammond - who is seen to favour a "softer" approach to Brexit - and Mr Fox, one of the most prominent pro-Brexit ministers, had "previously appeared at loggerheads" over the government's strategy on leaving the EU.

Davis's Brexit department said it was preparing to publish several papers, including plans for a new customs arrangement and a proposal on how to resolve the difficulties of a non-physical border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Sources at Britain's department for exiting the European Union said the "future partnership" papers would show that the British government was ready to move on to the next stage of the negotiations.

Guam residents stoic in the face of North Korean missile threat
With liberals back in charge in South Korea, Seoul is making peace offerings to its archrivals, but the North isn't biting. The rockets are supposed to land in the sea about 30 km (17 miles) from Guam, if the plan is approved by Kim Jong-un.

"These papers show we are ready to broaden out the negotiations".

The series of publications will also include papers on the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union - highlighting the U.K.'s view that so-called "exit issues" such as the Brexit bill and the Northern Irish border, which the European Union has insisted must be settled first, are inextricably linked to future relationship issues, which the European Union has said it will only discuss once "sufficient progress" has been reached in talks.

In July, EU officials said progress was hard not because Britain had unacceptable demands, but because it had no position at all on many issues. The EU has warned that an already-tight timetable could be delayed ahead of a scheduled March 2019 exit.

Britain will also offer to track goods being moved in vehicles across the Irish border with CCTV cameras and automated number plate technology as part of a light touch customs regime. The Brexit department declined to comment on the story.

Free movement for Irish citizens in and out of Britain is expected to continue after Brexit, with the establishment of a Schengen-style area between Ireland and Britain created to resolve the border problem.

As well the issue of the Irish Border, the first set of position papers will also cover continued availability of goods for the European Union and the United Kingdom, and confidentiality and access to official documents following the UK's withdrawal. The first will be a proposal for new customs arrangements.

Meanwhile, former Labour Foreign Secretary David Miliband has called for politicians on all sides to unite to fight back against the "worst consequences" of Brexit.

"We believe a time-limited interim period will be important to further our national interest and give business greater certainty - but it can not be indefinite; it can not be a back door to staying in the EU", Hammond and Fox wrote in a joint article for the Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
