Brexit Secretary David Davis
On his first official visit to Northern Ireland earlier this month, the Taoiseach even put forward his own suggestions for a "soft Brexit" - including the possibility of creating a new EU-UK customs union. The EU has warned that an already-tight timetable could be delayed ahead of a scheduled March 2019 exit.
Britain is keen to start talking about its post-Brexit relationship with Europe, wary of the need to reassure anxious businesses, citizens and investors.
News of the offer of a "Schengen area" between Britain and Ireland came as the Government prepares to publish a formal proposal to the European Union on the future of the Northern Irish border.
"We've been crystal clear that issues around our withdrawal and our future partnership are inextricably linked, and the negotiations so far have reinforced that view".
The UK will need a transition period to help businesses adjust after Brexit, the chancellor and the worldwide trade secretary have said. The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, warned EU ambassadors last month that the lack of progress meant talks on the future relationship with the United Kingdom, including a free-trade agreement, may not be possible by the next leader's summit in October, and may have to extended.
Free movement for Irish citizens in and out of Britain is expected to continue after Brexit, with the establishment of a Schengen-style area between Ireland and Britain created to resolve the border problem.

The UK will leave the Customs Union and Single Market they said, writing in the Sunday Telegraph, but there will be a "time-limited" transition period with the aim of helping business adjust and to avoid a "cliff-edge". But many politicians say Britons democratically voted to leave the bloc and it would be wrong to override the decision.
They said the UK's borders "must continue to operate smoothly", that goods bought on the internet "must still cross borders", and "businesses must still be able to supply their customers across the EU" in the weeks and months after Brexit.
Prime Minister Theresa May will hope the intervention of the two ministers will cool temperatures in the Tory ranks amid divisions over Brexit and speculation of a possible leadership challenge when MPs return to Westminster in September.
A second batch of papers will be released ahead of an October meeting of the European Council، when EU leaders are expected to decide whether enough progress has been made to proceed to talks on a future relationship.
Meanwhile, former Labour Foreign Secretary David Miliband has called for politicians on all sides to unite to fight back against the "worst consequences" of Brexit.
