LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s Brexit minister Dominic Raab cannot endorse a Brexit deal which does not include a set time limit on customs union membership, BuzzFeed reported on Friday.

The government has also pencilled in Nov. 27 for a parliamentary vote on the deal if it is agreed with the EU, sources told the publication.

London and Brussels are racing to agree a deal by the end of the year but Prime Minister Theresa May faces opposition from some of her own lawmakers who want a cleaner break from the bloc.
