British proposals to address the problem of the Irish border after Brexit, which were reported by Ireland's state broadcaster RTE, are only preliminary and are not the "be-all and end-all" of the plans, Britain's justice minister said on Tuesday

"These documents have emerged overnight. They are very much preliminary documents and they only cover a part of the issue when it comes to the Irish border," Robert Buckland told BBC radio.

"I don't think by any means this is the be all and end all of detailed negotiations over the next couple of weeks. Let's not pretend these documents are somehow the final piece of the jigsaw."
