EU Brexit envoy says ‘much more work’ needed to clinch deal

Liam Fox: UK must be able to withdraw from Irish backstop

If these talks are successful, officials will declare that "decisive progress" has been made on the terms of the U.K.'s exit from the bloc.

Michel Barnier told The Associated Press Thursday that "we need much more work" to clinch an agreement.

"It is important that Britain would not undercut our own products on our own market in the all-UK Irish backstop", one source said of the European Union demand that comes as the two sides are seeking a Brexit deal as soon as this month.

Although 95 per cent of a Brexit deal is said to be agreed, Britain and the European Union have yet to agree on how to guarantee that there will be no return to a visible border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland in the future. Any new customs posts on the border could also re-ignite lingering sectarian tensions.

Mr Rees-Mogg said "There is a concern that the Cabinet is not being fully involved in this, it's getting information at a late stage, there is an appearance of it being bounced, you hear of ministers getting 45 minutes to read crucial documents before Cabinet meetings, this is not a serious constitutional approach". "We're very close now", Sipila told reporters.

Tusk's comments came on the same day Austrian newspapers reported that Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab and European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier could meet over the next few days to seal an agreement.

"Seven days is probably pushing it, but I am optimistic that there will be a Brexit deal", Hunt said, adding it is "very, very hard to resolve but I am confident that we can".

Later, addressing leaders of the European People's Party group, Barnier warned of the threat that rising nationalism and populism pose to the EU ahead of European Parliament elections in May.

A memorandum leaked from within the British government gives a taste of a possible finale to the Brexit drama: Prime Minister Theresa May hails a deal in just over 10 days, supporters cheer as arranged, and the pact is put to a vote in parliament on November 27.

"We'll have to fight against those who want to demolish Europe, with their populist deceit, with their attacks against the European project", Barnier said.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that, while the Attorney General's legal advice to government is considered confidential, he could answer MP's questions about it.
