LONDON (Reuters) - There is a clear landing zone in many areas for a deal between Britain and the European Union but the details are not fully pinned down yet, Britain’s chief negotiator David Frost said on Wednesday.

“In many areas the landing zone and the nature of the agreements is pretty clear, if not exactly pinned down yet,” Frost told a parliamentary committee.

“What needs to happen between now and then is that we need to make progress, primarily in the areas where there are big gaps.”
