 British business minister Andrea Leadsom said on Wednesday her government’s focus was getting a divorce deal with the European Union at a summit next month that did not require an Irish backstop policy.

“We are looking at getting a deal, getting a good deal, that works for the UK and the EU that is different to the one that was negotiated previously,” Leadsom said.

“Our absolute focus is on getting a good deal on Oct. 17 when the EU Council meets. So we’re looking at creative ways to ensure that there won’t need to be a backstop.”
