UK's saving after Brexit even bigger than £350 million, Boris Johnson says

London:Britain will have even more money to spend on public services than the disputed £350 million (SR1.79 billion) a week Brexiteers promised after the country leaves the EU, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said in an interview published on Tuesday.
The £350 million figure was a central and controversial part of the pro-Leave campaign's "Take back control" message in the runup to the 2016 referendum. Last September government statisticians accused Johnson of misusing state data by repeating it.
Britain's theoretical gross contribution to the EU in 2016 was £18.9 billion - more than 360 million per week - but this was automatically lowered to £13.9 billion by a rebate arrangement that has been in place since 1984.
The government received a further £4.4 billion back to spend mostly on farm subsidies and infrastructure in poorer regions. Overall, Britain's net payment to the EU worked out at £181 million a week.
Brexit opponents say Johnson and other pro-Leave campaigners deliberately misled the public by saying £350 million a week could be spent on the state-run National Health Service (NHS), a claim emblazoned on a campaign bus, and it has become symbolic of the divisions caused by the referendum.
But in the Guardian interview Johnson said the UK's weekly gross contribution to the EU would rise to £438 million by the time Britain left the bloc.
"There was an error on the side of the bus," Johnson told the Guardian newspaper. "We grossly underestimated the sum over which we would be able to take back control. As and when the cash becomes available - and it won't until we leave - the NHS should be at the very top of the list." Johnson has previously said the £350 million figure referred to the gross payments to the EU, rather than the net amount. It also does not take account of EU funds given directly to other British bodies such as universities. In the last week, a number of senior Brexit campaigners such as Nigel Farage, the former head of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), suggested there needed to be another referendum to reaffirm the 2016 result of 52-48 percent in favor of leaving the EU.
They fear Prime Minister Theresa May's approach has led to the watering down of several of their demands, including the ability to reduce immigration and to reclaim sovereignty by leaving the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. Agencies
