LONDON (Reuters) – Britain wants a Brexit agreement by the end of November and Prime Minister Theresa May would give a speech on Nov. 19 saying she had delivered on the referendum with a deal which brings the country back together, the BBC reported on Tuesday.

However, a spokesman at May’s Downing Street office dismissed the report which outlines a detailed timetable in which the BBC cited a document entitled “Brexit Communications Grid Summary”.

The BBC cited the document as saying Brexit Minister Dominic Raab will also put to parliament by way of a statement the Withdrawal Agreement and Future Framework on Nov. 19.

Parliament would vote on Nov. 27, according to the document.
