The U.K. and EU are embroiled in a new Brexit row over up to €300 million in U.K. contributions to the EU's emergency coronavirus fund

LONDON — London and Brussels are embroiled in a new Brexit row over up to €300 million in U.K. contributions to the EU's emergency coronavirus fund.

Officials raised the issue at last month's meeting of the Specialised Committee on Financial Provisions — one of the joint U.K.-EU committees tasked with implementing the terms of Brexit deal. The British position is that the U.K. should not be liable to pay any commitments that stem from post-Brexit changes to the EU's Multiannual Financial Framework regulations — and nor should it benefit from such funding. About a third of the U.K.'s overall commitment to the coronavirus fund is not under dispute, because British officials consider that it comes under previously agreed "flexibilities" in the MFF regulations.

However, a European Commission official said the U.K. remains "fully liable to contribute to — and fully eligible to benefit from — the Emergency Support Instrument."

Sterling to take a pasting if UK seeks no extension for EU trade talks - Reuters pollSterling will lose recent gains against the dollar and weaken further if Britain does not ask for an extension to its Brexit transition period by a June 30 deadline to allow more time for talks on a trade deal with the EU, a Reuters poll found. Bullshit. Pasting... I learned a new word today. Thanks Sterling is already down. Currency values are not decided by ‘polls’ but economic realities.
