Brexit negotiations to resume on November 9

London - British and EU negotiators are due to resume Brexit talks in Brussels on November 9, according to the Brexit ministry which corrected an earlier date of November 8 given by the minister.

Brexit minister David Davis and the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier have agreed "that the two teams would meet for Article 50 negotiations on 9 and 10 November," the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

Davis had told a parliamentary committee on Tuesday that the next round of negotiations would begin on November 8 and continue until November 10.

Davis said the meetings would be the "first stock-take" since a summit in Brussels last month, adding that Britain wanted an "intensification" of talks.

EU leaders are scheduled to hold a summit next month to decide whether or not to begin negotiations on a transition period and future partnership agreement once Britain has left the European Union.

Britain is set to leave the bloc in March 2019.
