BRUSSELS (Reuters) - There are still too many questions and too few answers in talks between the European Union and Britain over the country’s withdrawal from the bloc, EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier said on Friday.

Speaking at an event in Brussels, Barnier listed issues such as data protection, cooperation between police and judicial authorities and the governance of the withdrawal agreement as outstanding issues between the two parties.

“In the Brexit negotiations, there are still too many questions and too few answers,” Barnier said, adding time was running out to reach a deal on these matters.

Barnier said he was awaiting Britain’s policy paper on its future relationship with the EU, which is due next week.
