Brexit defeat for ministers

Peers inflicted a resounding defeat on the government yesterday over the issue of staying in a UK-EU customs union after Brexit.

By a majority of 123, the Lords backed a cross-party move to demand that ministers try to achieve a customs union with the EU in the negotiations.

Theresa May has made it one of her "red lines" that the UK must leave the customs union.
