British finance minister Philip Hammond said Britain should adopt a pragmatic approach to Brexit negotiations which begin on Monday, striking a different tone to Prime Minister Theresa May who has threatened to leave the European Union without a deal if necessary.
The source said talks with the small Northern Irish party were progressing well as meetings in Downing Street with all of the British province's main political leaders were taking place.
Following discussions in Brussels on Thursday, the offices of Brexit Secretary David Davis and the European Commission's chief negotiator Michel Barnier released a joint statement to confirm the date.
Many European Union citizens would like to follow Britain in having a chance to vote on membership of the bloc, although fewer than one in five support leaving it.
The debate within Britain's government about how to quit the European Union has been blown wide open by an election that left May without a majority in parliament and damaged her authority in the ruling Conservative Party.
"And if that wasn't enough, calling an unnecessary general election purely for the self interest of the Conservative Party and having mucked that campaign up they are now putting the country in hock to the DUP". Britain will be the first member state ever to leave the bloc.
Both sides are keen to ensure that people and goods keep moving smoothly across the border and that nothing undermines the peace agreement that ended decades of bloody conflict in Northern Ireland.

"The risk is that Northern Ireland continues to fail to find solutions, and potentially the peace process unwinds", Simon Usherwood, senior politics lecturer at Surrey University, told AFP.
Mrs Foster said she thought it was "very realistic" that a deal can be reached on power-sharing in Northern Ireland by the end of this month.
Northern Ireland has been without a powersharing executive since March and without a first and deputy first minister since January, after Sinn Fein collapsed the administration amid faltering trust and relations with the DUP. European Union leaders gave chief negotiator Michel Barnier no authority to so much as talk about trade until he clinches outline deals on Brussels' priority issues, including on what London owes them.
- Deal or no deal?
A majority in Northern Ireland wanted the United Kingdom to remain in the European Union, though the DUP backed a divorce from the bloc. "It is the only way to unite the country and strengthen our bargaining power with the European Union".
"The prime minister has totally ignored the will of those people in terms of Brexit".
