Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab has indicated that a UK-EU deal should be done and dusted by November 21st.
In a letter to Labour MP Hilary Benn, Chairman of Parliament’s Exiting EU Committee, Raab wrote: “I would be happy to give evidence o the Committee when a deal is finalised, and currently expect 21 November to be suitable”.
It comes as Theresa May and the government refuse to chuck Chequers – despite the likes of David Davis still warning that it won’t get through Parliament. Around 50 Tory MPs have vowed to vote Chequers down.

The government certainly think a deal with the EU is close – and it won’t be a Canada-style deal. What will Brexiteers do next?
