LONDON, Oct 15 (Reuters) - The leader of the strongly pro-Brexit faction within Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative Party said he was optimistic that a tolerable deal could be struck with the European Union that he could vote for in parliament.

Steve Baker, the head of the European Research Group which wants a cleaner break with Brussels, told reporters after he emerged from a meeting in Johnson's office that he was very pleased the government was making progress.

"I am optimistic that it is still possible we could reach a tolerable deal and I will be voting for it," he said on Tuesday. (Reporting by Kate Holton; editing by Stephen Addison)
