LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is working to make progress in Brexit negotiations as quickly as possible, Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokeswoman said on Wednesday when asked whether a deal with the European Union could slip into December.

“Our aim is to continue to make good progress and that will take another step forward at council this week,” the spokeswoman said. “Everybody is working incredibly hard to do it as quickly as possible and to make sure that there is plenty of time for legislation.”
