Ireland says Brexit legal text needed today to be ready for EU summit

LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - Britain must put its proposals for a Brexit deal with the European Union in the form of a legal text on Tuesday if EU leaders are to approve an agreement at their summit in Brussels on Oct 17-18, Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney said.

Speaking to reporters after a meeting of EU ministers, Coveney said “big progress” had to be made on Tuesday for the process to move forward.
