The Tánaiste says there's no evil plan hiding on a shelf that would solve the issue of the border with Northern Ireland.

"In a no deal scenario, while we will prevent physical infrastructure, undoubtedly the imposition of tariffs and the need to protect the integrity of the single market, to keep Ireland in the single market that we have been part of creating, will provide a disruption to the all-island trade which is something that we will all work intensively to avoid".

"In parallel to the predicted macroeconomic impacts, a no-deal Brexit will have severe negative effects in a number of sectors and among smaller and medium-sized businesses, and it will be widely felt on a regional basis".

"(But) we are not going to put checks on the border or close to it", he told reporters in Dublin.

The Times, in its commentary, says the scale of Hunt's task in turning around the contest is laid bare by their latest survey which indicates that most members of the Conservative Party do not believe Hunt's claim that he is prepared to take Britain out of the European Union (EU) without a deal.

The 117-page document, which built on one of the largest-ever pieces of legislation lawmakers passed in March to prepare as best as possible for a no deal, described the impact of such an outcome on Ireland as "profound on all levels".

"A no-deal Brexit should not even be remotely considered by the UK Government".

Particular areas of concern include trade disruption, delays at ports closures of business due to increased costs of transit and trade, and political instability in the North.

It also stated that goods such as live animals and animal products that require checks and come from the United Kingdom, of which Northern Ireland is a member, will be subject to a minimum 24-hour notification period.

"Fundamentally what is required, deal or no deal, is regulatory alignment".

"Make no mistake, a no-deal Brexit will be an ugly prospect".

"There is no sugar coating of that message".
