The official figures from the treasury were 11.2 billion in 2918 net.

That excludes other off - book funding such as the cohesion fund.

Making the annual contribution to the EU as "small" as 7.8 bn. By leaving they would save out that amount. Only to be paying at least that amount in extra paperwork, as boris was forced to admit.

Labour wrong on cost of no-deal - minister

House of Commons

Parliament

Treasury minister Jesse Norman says Labour's John McDonnell was wrong to say the cost to business of a no-deal Brexit would be 15bn annually in extra red tape.

The actual cost would be 7.5bn, Mr Norman tells MPs.

Referring to the government's latest no-deal preparation documents, he says: "It says, perfectly clearly at the bottom of page nine as I have it printed out, it says that the latest estimate for the annual administrative burden is 7.5bn updated to reflect the 2017 data."

He adds: "I'm in no sense happy about that."

Hilarious! It makes it sound like 150M a week is chicken feed.

150 pence is too much.
