Brexit secretary says UK will not pay €100bn bill to leave EU

Brexit secretary says UK will not pay €100bn bill to leave EUDavid Davis has rejеcted suggеstions that the UK will havе to pay a €100bn (£84.5bn) bill to leavе the Europеan Union, saying rising еstimates of thе divorcе bill prove that no dеal is bеtter than a bad dеal.

“We will not be paying €100bn,” the Brexit secretary told ITV’s Good Morning Britain.

It had been estimated that Brussels was seeking up to €60bn to allow the UK to leave the bloc, but added demands by the EU could put the final settlement at €100bn, according to the Financial Times.

Davis said: “Our intention is to get an agreement; we have to maintain the alternative option. That’s why Theresa said no deal is better than a bad deal. This morning you see demands for €100bn in the papers. It has gone from €50bn, to €60bn to €100bn. It rather actually proves her point. I know that is not where we will end up. The simple truth is this is going to be a tough negotiation.”
