(TELEGRAPH) — Theresa May is backing a plan for Britain’s future relationship with the European Union that would tie up firms in regulation and make trade deals with other countries “impossible”, senior Brexiteers have warned.

The warnings came amid broader concerns about whether the Government could back down on its pledge to leave the customs union altogether, amid overwhelming opposition in the House of Lords and the prospect of a fresh Commons vote this week.
