EU's Barnier is optimistic of getting a Brexit deal on Wednesday - RTE reporter

LONDON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - The European Union’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has told commissioners he is optimistic of getting a deal done on Wednesday, RTE reporter Tony Connelly said.

“Michel Barnier has told EU Commissioners he is optimistic of getting a deal done today,” Connelly said.

“It’s understood officials are confident that a solution can be found” on VAT. “It’s understood consent is also proving difficult, with a senior EU source saying the DUP are pushing to restore a tighter Stormont lock.”
