Ministers submit May "Plan B" for no-deal-brexit scenario – Sun

(Reuters) – Cabinet ministers have drafted a "Plan B" for a no-deal Brexit if Parliament votes in favor of Prime Minister Theresa May's intention to leave the European Union, The Sun reported Friday.

The unnamed pro-Brexit ministers had informed May about their alternative plan, the paper reported here, without quoting sources.

Ministers have suggested that Britain continue to pay EU membership dues until 2021 and obey the block's rules to avoid cliff exit when leaving in March 2019, Sun said.

The country could then negotiate with Brussels as a "third country" for two years, facilitating agreement on a new free trade agreement and avoid paying the entire £ 38 billion divorce bill.

While negotiations with Brussels are entering the final phase, May's approach is under attack from all sides of the divisive Brexit debate.

Many politicians are dissatisfied with their compromise plans to maintain free movement of goods with the EU, which will cause Britain to refrain from making decisions in Brussels without further input.

If an agreement is rejected by the parliament, the country could be forced into an uncertain future: Abandon abruptly, the collapse of the May administration, a vote or, as some opponents of Brexit hope, a new referendum.

When the alternative proposal was presented in May, she informed ministers that her plan was "not yet needed" but was greeted with a "surprisingly warm response" from Federal Chancellor Philip Hammond.
