Michael Gove: We will leave by October 31
Michael Gove has insisted the UK will leave the EU by October 31 despite the Government asking Brussels for a delay. Asked if he could guarantee that the UK would leave the EU by Halloween, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster said: "Yes, that's our determined policy. We know that the EU want us to leave, we know that we have a deal that allows us to leave." Mr Gove told Sky News's Sophy Ridge On Sunday: "We are going to leave by October 31st. We have the means and the ability to do so and people who - yesterday we had some people who voted for delay, voted explicitly to try to frustrate this process and to drag it out.
