    Oct 15 (Reuters) - European shares climbed to a two-week
high on Tuesday, as markets cheered comments from the European
Union's chief Brexit negotiator that a deal with Britain over
the terms of their divorce was still possible this week.
    The pan-European STOXX 600 index  .STOXX  rose 0.6% by 0709
GMT with some British banks leading gains.
    The UK-focused midcap FTSE 250  .FTMC  gained 0.8%, while
Dublin's ISEQ  .ISEQ  rose 1.5%.
    Michel Barnier's remarks on Brexit gave investors fresh
hopes that Britain would be able to clinch a deal to ensure a
smooth exit from the bloc on Oct. 31.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL5N27017L
    Recruiter Hays Plc  HAYS.L  jumped 5.5% and was the biggest
gainer on the benchmark index, after the company reported flat
first-quarter net fees as strong hiring in the United States and
China offset a drop in the United Kingdom.  L3N2701K6
