LONDON (Reuters) - Britain needs to see the European Union compromise on Brexit and Prime Minister Boris Johnson is prepared to walk away from negotiations, education minister Gavin Williamson said on Friday amid hope that a deal can be struck by the Oct. 31 deadline.

“We need to see the European Union shift,” he told ITV.

“There is not a sense that we will... refuse to walk away from the table.”
