Boris Johnson: UK will not pay 'a penny more or less" to EU post Brexit

The Foreign Secretary was speaking to BBC Radio 4

Friday, August 25, 2017

Boris Johnson has insisted Britain will not pay a “penny more, not a penny less” than it is required to pay to Brussels after Brexit.

The Foreign Secretary has said the UK will meet all required legal obligations regarding a financial settlement.

Johnson had previously said the European Union could “go whistle” over a proposed £100bn to cover the UK’s outstanding liabilities.

In an interview to BBC Radio 4, the Foreign Secretary insisted the country would meet all of its obligations, but would not haggle over the figure.

He said the UK would not pay “a penny more, not a penny less”.

The third formal round of Brexit negotiations is set to begin next week.
