The UK’s Brexit negotiator David Davis has described the deal struck by Theresa May to move to the next phase of talks as a “statement of intent”.
He said it was not “legally enforceable” and if the UK failed to get a trade deal with the EU then it would not pay its divorce bill.
The Irish government said the deal was binding as far as Ireland is concerned.
“The European Union will be holding the United Kingdom to account,” the Irish government’s chief whip told RTE.
