Priti Patel asks Brexit Secretary about value of UK share of EU assets

Posted on: February 1, 2018

Priti Patel asks the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union about Britain’s share of EU assets and negotiating the return of Britain’s investment over the past 45 years.

T6. Over the last 45 years, British taxpayers have had far too much of their money taken from them to go to the EU. Now that we are leaving, can the Secretary of State give an indication of the value of our share of EU assets and what will happen to the share that we have contributed? Is he negotiating to get it all back? [903693]

My right hon. Friend picks up on an important point. It is a component of the negotiations that brought the public claim down from £100 billion to £35 billion—part of that was offset by our assets.
