(Worthy News) - Britain on Wednesday said there was no set date for Brexit talks to finish, backtracking from a letter by Brexit secretary Dominic Raab that suggested a deal on the terms of its departure from the European Union could be finalised by Nov. 21.
Raab had said that a Brexit deal was firmly in sight and should be agreed by that date in a week-old letter to a lawmaker that was published on Wednesday, briefly sending sterling sharply higher.
But his department later said that while Nov. 21 was the date suggested by the chair of parliament’s Brexit committee, that did not mean a firm date had been set for a deal to be done. [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]
