Britain will not stay "indefinitely" in a customs union with the European Union but the precise timing of a temporary customs arrangement with the bloc is up for debate, James Cleverly, deputy chairman of the Conservative Party, said on Sunday.

Speaking on Sky News, Cleverly said: "We are not going to stay indefinitely in a customs union."

"As long as we are able to sign and implement those trade deals as they come onstream, then I think the precise timing of how long we are in a temporary customs arrangement is something that can be up for debate."
