  • Deutsche Bank has warned that up to 4,000 jobs are at risk of being moved out of the UK after Brexit. The bank has identified up to 2,000 front office staff who could be moved, as well as a further 2,000 people working in functions that support client activity. (The Guardian)
  • Theresa May has met with the EU’s chief negotiator for a “working dinner” in the run-up to a crucial summit on Saturday, in which EU leaders meet to agree their key negotiating principles. (BBC News)
  • Analysis by the German Bundestag has suggested that European Parliaments could be given a vote on a transitional Brexit deal. Although it has long been known that a final trade deal between the UK and the EU would need the assent of Union parliaments, it has been assumed that an initial divorce deal would only require majority agreement across the EU’s 27 governments.
