Andrew Bridgen welcomes PM commitment that EU divorce bill is contingent on an acceptabe trade deal

11th December 2017

Andrew Bridgen welcomes confirmation from the Prime Minister that the so-called EU divorce bill will only be paid on successful negotiation of an acceptable trade deal which, he says, will focus the minds of EU negotiators.

I thank my right hon. Friend for confirming very clearly that the so-called EU divorce bill will be paid only if we are successful at negotiating an acceptable trade deal with the European Union. Does she agree that this will certainly focus the minds of EU negotiators and is our best chance of obtaining an acceptable outcome for the UK?

I am optimistic about getting that good trade deal for the United Kingdom with the EU, because actually it is in the EU27’s interests for their businesses to be able to continue to trade on good terms with the UK.
