However, the paper had infuriated Eurosceptic British Cabinet ministers because its legal text does not state when the backstop will come to an end.

"The backstop paper has been amended and now expresses, in much more detail, the time limited nature of our proposal - something the prime minister and David Davis have always been committed to".

'Difficult to see how United Kingdom proposal on backstop will deliver a workable solution to avoid a hard border and respect integrity of the single market/customs union, ' tweeted EU parliament chief Guy Verhofstadt.

But Mr Barnier said the proposal raised a number of relevant and hard issues.

Pro-Brexit campaign group Leave.EU have attacked Lord Malloch-Brown as a "puppet for George Soros" and chief "Remoaner", while another group, Leave Means Leave, has launched a fundraising drive among supporters to "secure the swift, clean Brexit you all voted for".

Under its "backstop" proposal, there would be no tariffs, quotas, rules of origin or customs declarations on all UK-EU trade, not just trade between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Some politicians say any return of border controls could disrupt a peace agreement to reduce sectarian conflict in the north.

Durant delivers deja vu ‘assassin’ dagger into Cavaliers
CLEVELAND, Ohio - On a night when most of the Golden State Warriors didn't have it, Kevin Durant went on an offensive explosion. Golden State, trying to win the Larry O'Brien Trophy for the third time in four years, leads the best-of-seven series, 3-0.

He warned, though, "We do not accept an à la carte approach, including to the single market". "The DUP is committed to delivering on the verdict of the 2016 referendum and ensuring that as we exit the European Union, we get the best deal for Northern Ireland and the entire United Kingdom".

When pressed on whether he could remain in post if the backstop deal did not meet his full approval, Mr Davis said: "That's a question I think for the Prime Minister to be honest". May's proposal came to be known as the backstop option, which doesn't really address numerous issues May's cabinet and European Union officials are concerned about.

The pound slipped to the day's low of $1.3371 in the hours after the proposal's publication.

"I have been talking to colleagues for the last two or three weeks to try and gauge the views and I wish I could report we had complete unity on all amendments but we are not in that position", Starmer told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

And he warned that "time is moving on", with less than three weeks to go to the June 28 European Union leaders' summit at which Brussels and the Irish government are pushing for resolution of the border issue.

Earlier, one source and other media suggested Davis had threatened to resign and the apparent move to compromise with him is yet another sign of the difficulty a weakened prime minister is having in driving the negotiations with the EU.
