British Interior Minister and PM hopeful Sajid Javid said that UK should offer to pay for the whole cost of the new border system on the island of Ireland.
"I would offer to pay the entire cost of this new border system, not just obviously for ourselves, but for the Irish," he said.
The UK was initially supposed to leave the EU on 29 March. The sides agreed on a withdrawal deal, but British MPs refused to pass it, with the arrangement to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland being one of the main points of concern for parliament. Brussels then subsequently moved the deadline for London to 31 October.
