U.K.'s Theresa May travelling to Northern Ireland in Brexit bid

"On that basis, the Prime Minister will come along to spell out to us her ideas for what happens next".

The Times reported that Leave-backing MPs from the Commons Brexit Committee rejected the concession during a meeting with Mr Selmayr in Brussels on Monday.

They will be joined by former education secretary Nicky Morgan and ex-cabinet office minister Damian Green in the group, which will meet "regularly" with Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, a No 10 spokeswoman said.

The United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union officially on March 29, and some officials are anxious about how it will turn out.

Keen to avoid the economic disruption a no-deal Brexit would bring to Germany's economy, which slowed sharply previous year, Merkel also values Britain as a like-minded partner and wants to keep its security expertise close at hand.

Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg, a Conservative lawmaker and keen supporter of Brexit, told the Mail on Sunday that he believed the plans showed unnecessary panic by officials over a no-deal Brexit, as senior royals had remained in London during World War II bombing.

EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said that backstop remains "the only operational solution available" for an orderly exit of Britain from the EU.

"Parliament's mandate is to replace the backstop, the current backstop ... is toxic to those of us living in Northern Ireland".

The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, is due in Northern Ireland later today.

Mrs May's last visit to Northern Ireland was when she was attempting to reach beyond Westminster and drum up support among the public for her Withdrawal Bill.

While European Commission Secretary General Selmayr, the long-time lieutenant of President Jean-Claude Juncker, had reiterated the EU line that it would not reopen the withdrawal agreement, Labour lawmaker Hilary Benn told reporters: "I got the impression that they might be prepared to consider some additional statement or legal protocol".

Bill 2017-2019 empowers the government to fund and negotiate healthcare deals in the event of British state pensioners being left without the "S1 form" arrangements for their healthcare in countries like France after the United Kingdom leaves the EU.

Britain on Monday will seek to reassure foreign investors anxious about Britain leaving the European Union (EU) after Japanese automaker Nissan said it was scrapping a major planned investment less than two months before Brexit.

In her speech, Mrs May will say she will find a solution "that commands broad support across the community in Northern Ireland" and "secures a majority in the Westminster Parliament, which is the best way to deliver for the people of Northern Ireland".

She will also express hope that steps can be taken to move towards the restoration of devolution, so that local politicians "can get back to work on the issues that matter to the people they represent".

Mrs May will say: 'The measure of this moment in Northern Ireland's history must be more than whether we avoid a return to the challenges of the past.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the European Union was ready to listen to proposals to solve the border "riddle", but needs to hear from Britain how it thinks it can be done.

Across the industry "there are investments poised to be made if we can settle this question of the terms of our exit and future relationship", Clark said, before warning that a no-deal divorce from the European Union would be "ruinous for our prospects".

But Irish deputy premier Simon Coveney said alternatives to the backstop were "wishful thinking".
