TALKS are set to continue this week as Tory MPs say they are confident a trade deal with the EU will be reached by the end of the year.
Tory MP David Davis has said it was “quite likely” a deal would be struck between the UK and Brussels.
Appearing on TalkRadio, he said: “The more tough we are, the bigger the screaming from Brussels, then the more likely we are to get a deal.
“So at the moment I think it is quite likely we will get a deal.
“In fact, I have always thought it was quite likely we would get a deal.”
Downing Street revealed there had been “useful exchanges” between the UK and EU in recent weeks.
