UK says final Brexit bill can only be calculated once all issues settled

LONDON (Reuters) - The final figure Britain must pay when it leaves the European Union can only be set when all issues relating to the country’s departure have been agreed, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday.

“We have been absolutely clear that we can only resolve the financial implications of the UK’s withdrawal and other issues as part of the settlement of all the issues,” the spokesman told reporters.
