Where there is a will, there is a #deal - we have one! It’s a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK and it is testament to our commitment to find solutions. I recommend that #EUCO endorses this deal. pic.twitter.com/7AfKyCZ6k9

Boris Johnson has said We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control — now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities.
More to come as the Brexit story continues.
