European Union leaders will meet to discuss a possible Brexit deal with Britain over dinner in Brussels on October 17, the European Council said on October 3.

The October 17 night dinner of the 27 EU heads of state and government has been scheduled by summit chair and president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, ahead of a regular summit the following day, which British Prime Minister Theresa May will also attend.

EU officials and diplomats say leaders hope to be able to agree a final withdrawal treaty offer to London which May can then accept in principle, paving the way for a further special summit on November 17-18 to complete terms for a political declaration on a future EU-UK trading relationship.
