Raab: Expect Brexit Deal by November 21

The pound has jumped off the back of the news that Dominic Raab expects a Brexit deal to be “finalised” by 21st November. The news came buried in a letter from the Brexit Secretary to Hilary Benn, chair of the Exiting the EU Committee. Just three weeks time is quite optimistic… 

UPDATE: Awkwardly a DExEU spokesperson later said: “There is no set date for the negotiations to conclude. The 21st November was the date offered by the Chair of the Select Committee for the Secretary of State to give evidence.”
