May says UK might not pay Brexit ‘divorce bill’

Theresa May has said the UK might not pay the Brexit divorce bill in the event of a no-deal Brexit. 

Mrs May said that while the government has agreed to settle outstanding obligations, “without a deal the position changes”.

The comments came as the Prime Minister spoke to MPs during PMQs on Wednesday. The comments contradict others by Chancellor Philip Hammond, who told a Lords committee on Tuesday that the UK would still have to pay money to Brussels in the event of a “no deal” outcome.

Do you think the UK would pay the £39bn Brexit “divorce bill”in the event of a no-deal? Comment your thoughts.
