Mr Davis said the move was part of an ongoing process which had already seen almost 3,000 posts created across Government to support Brexit efforts.

Brexit Secretary David Davis has proposed a different structure to the negotiations with the European Union in the hope that it will help both sides to make the necessary compromises, a person familiar with the United Kingdom position said on Monday.

According to a spokesman for British Prime Minister Theresa May, she is confident she could reach an agreement on Brexit, scheduled for March 2019, despite the government's disagreement over the negotiating strategy.

He told colleagues: "Alongside the negotiations in Brussels, it is crucial that we are putting our own domestic preparations in place so that we are ready at the point that we leave the European Union".

Davis said during the Cabinet meeting that the government's proposed customs arrangements will require investment in new systems and customs officers, regardless of the outcome of the Brexit negotiations.

Mr Davis said he believed Britain would agree some kind of basic deal with the European Union, even in the "very improbable" eventuality that they fail to agree on a trade deal. London has already announced it will invest £ 662 million (about € 753 million) to prepare for Brexit, including two new ministries.

"The withdrawal agreement on balance will probably favour the Union in terms of the things like money and so on".
