British Finance Minister Sajid Javid crossed the wires, noting that  Saturday’s vote in parliament on Brexit deal will be a big hurdle but added that a deal will bring certainty to the economy.

“There is a decent chance that Brexit deal will get through parliament on Saturday but we will leave with no deal on October 31 if necessary,” Javid added. “The Brexit deal will allow the UK to build own future but also keep a solid relationship with the EU.”

The GBP/USD pair showed no reaction to Javid’s remarks and was last seen trading at 1.2870, adding 0.3% on the day. Below are some additional quotes, per Reuters.
