London (dpa) - Britain‘s Brexit Secretary David Davis said on Sunday that Britain will not pay the country‘s hefty EU exit bill if a trade agreement with the bloc is not struck.

"No deal means that we won‘t be paying the money," Davis said, according to Britain‘s Press Association.

Davis‘ statement contradicted claims made by his cabinet colleague, Chancellor Philip Hammond, who last week told the British Parliament‘s finance committee that Britain will stand by its financial obligations to the EU.

Brussels and London had agreed on Friday a calculation method to determine the sum of the final bill for Britain‘s withdrawal from the EU. Among other things, the calculation deals with Britain‘s long-term commitments, such as pensions for British EU officials.

London estimates the total amount to be 40 billion-45 billion euros (47 billion-53 billion dollars).
