The pound soared as the news emerged today in a letter from Mr Raab to Hilary Benn, chair of the Commons Brexit committee.

Negotiations between the UK and EU formally restarted in Brussels this week, raising hopes of a possible deal.

Today Mr Benn published a letter sent by Mr Raab last week in which the minister predicted a deal would be done soon.

He wrote: “I would be happy to give evidence to the committee when a deal is finalised, and currently expect November 21 to be suitable.”

Mr Raab added: “The end is now firmly in sight and, while obstacles remain, it cannot be beyond us to navigate them.

“We have resolved most of the issues and we are building up together what the future relationship should look like and making real progress.”

He said the main outstanding issue to be resolved in talks is the Northern Ireland “backstop” which is meant to rule out checks on the Irish border.

No10 envoy Olly Robbins is meeting top Eurocrats this week – in a bid to strike an agreement as quickly as possible.

The PM has been hoping to cut a deal in time for an emergency Brexit summit which could be held in mid-November.

Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes?
