MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was submitting on Wednesday “constructive and reasonable proposals” to the European Union and that he hoped that Brussels would find room to compromise to secure a deal.

“Today in Brussels we are tabling what I believe are constructive and reasonable proposals, which provide a compromise for both sides,” he told his Conservative Party’s annual conference.

“And yes this is a compromise by the UK, and I hope very much that our friends understand that and compromise in their turn.”
