It has been reported that the EU may ask Britain to pay for outstanding budget obligations as it leaves the EU, with estimates putting the bill at as much as €60 billion.

UK Conservative MP Karl McCartney, a member of the UK House of Commons committee on Brexit, said the British Government would not pay the EU such a sum as part of the final Brexit settlement and that the decision to leave the EU was primarily about sovereignty.
