After talks with the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier on Friday, Raab said he was “as confident as before, if not more” that there will be a deal with the EU on Brexit.

“There is a measure of flexibility but we are aiming for the October European Council,” Raab said of the Oct. 18-19 top EU meeting.
