BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Britain’s withdrawal agreement from the European Union must be ready by October, the bloc’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on Friday as London and the 27 remaining states sealed a deal to move their negotiations forward.

“We will need to have the final version of the withdrawal agreement ready by October 2018, in less than one year,” Barnier told a news conference.
