Theresa May's suggestion that the United Kingdom could remain attached to the European Union after December 2020 could only be an "alternative" to the backstop suggestion, Raab wrote in the Telegraph.
Irish broadcaster RTE said this would need to be negotiated as a separate treaty and would not replace Brussels' demand for a Northern Ireland-specific backstop to ensure the status quo along the Irish land border.
Veterinary checks are already conducted on 10 percent of livestock transported to Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK, Barnier said.
The UK and the European Union signed up to a backstop agreement in December 2017. "I see any extension, any extension or being in any form of backstop as undesirable. But we are running out of time, and we should not fear a "no deal" outcome", Davis said.
Once the implementation period ended, if the final trade deal has not yet been done with the EU the UK would agree to a legally binding "temporary UK-EU joint customs territory", effectively keeping the entire country in a customs union with the EU.
Steve Baker is hoping to bolt his proposal onto a bill being taken through Westminster by Ms Bradley focused on making it easier for civil servants to take major decisions in Northern Ireland in the ongoing absence of devolved ministers.
"But to cater for a situation where a future relationship is not in place in time, we accept that an insurance policy is needed for the people of Northern Ireland". May opposes this because, she argues, it amounts to splitting the United Kingdom into different customs zones, which would be politically unacceptable.
"There are some limited circumstances in which it could be argued that an extension to the implementation period might be preferable if we were certain it was only for a short time", May told parliament.
Last week, the European Union dropped plans for a November summit on Brexit because of a lack of progress in negotiations and began preparations for a disastrous "no-deal" scenario when the clock runs out in March 2019.
Last week, May indicated she could accept extending the transition period in which the United Kingdom would remain subject to the customs union and single market beyond December 2020 in an attempt to reach a free-trade agreement that would prevent the backstop being used.
The prime minister is scheduled to make a statement on Monday afternoon, after intense criticism from the Tory right for appearing to have made no progress other than indicating at last week's European summit that she was open to extending the post-Brexit transition period.
Theresa May will insist the Brexit deal is 95% complete as she faces MPs after a weekend of vicious attacks from within her own ranks.
Several Conservative Brexit MPs as well as opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn asked pointed questions - which were not answered - about how much extending the transition period would cost the UK.
For his part, former Brexit Secretary David Davis said the PM has "managed to anger not just Leavers but ardent Remainers as well".
