LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s culture minister Jeremy Wright said the government would continue to talk to the opposition Labour Party on Monday to try to find a solution to the Brexit impasse.

“I’m entirely supportive of the prime minister’s view that she needs to find a way through this, that she’s tried everything else … and we now need to talk about what else might work,” he told BBC television. “That’s what these talks are for.

“As I understand it there will be conversations that continue today and we need those conversations to proceed and I hope (they) reach a sensible conclusion.”

Prime Minister Theresa May could offer to remain in a permanent customs union with the European Union to win support of Labour, the BBC reported.
