Barnier told small business leaders that the talks were "continuing intensively this week, day and night, with the aim. of having a deal within reach, if we follow through to the end of this negotiations, on October 17".

Barnier reiterated that as much as 85 percent of a withdrawal agreement had already been agreed, boosting the pound on financial markets. Another summit in November is planned to close the deal.

Cabinet ministers briefed on Brexit talks said the issue of the Irish backstop was also close to being settled, the newpaper said.

Michael Russell will be there representing the Scottish Government and is expected to once again sound the alarm about the damage to Scotland's economy a hard or no-deal Brexit would do. "It will not, and it can not be business as usual", he said, adding that the European Commission has set up plans to help businesses.

His comments came after a translation of a speech given by European Union chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier sparked confusion about the state of play in negotiations.

"However, while not a direct parallel, it is worth noting that the "Three-Day Week", introduced in early 1974 in response to energy shortages and increased militancy on the part of the miners, was associated with a fall in output of a little under 3% that quarter".
