LONDON (Reuters) - Two possible forms of future customs ties between Britain and the European Union are still on the table as the two sides start talks on their future relationship, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday.

May’s government has previously outlined measures for either a customs partnership or a highly streamlined customs arrangement.

The spokesman said Britain was still looking at both options, and no deadline for a decision on which one to pursue had been set.
