LONDON (Reuters) – Frustration in the British government is rising because London has offered a number of proposals to solve a standoff with the European Union over Northern Ireland but has not had a lot back, Brexit minister David Frost said on Wednesday.

“Our position is that we would like to find negotiated agreements that … bring it back to the sort of light-touch agreement that we thought we were agreeing,” Frost told a parliamentary committee.

“Our frustration … is that we’re not getting a lot of traction, and we feel we have put in a lot of ideas and we haven’t had very much back to help move these discussions forward, and meanwhile … time is running out.”
