Brexit bonus ‘hope’

Daily Star - - NEWS -

BRI­TAIN could still clinch a Brexit “deal div­i­dend” which could fund the cash-strapped NHS, the Chan­cel­lor said yes­ter­day.

Philip Ham­mond said there had been “a mea­sur­able change in pace” in crunch talks with the EU, and the UK could walk away with a good deal.

A “Brexit div­i­dend” has been floated by Theresa May, who sug­gested it could part fund a £20.5bil­lion an­nual boost to the health ser­vice.

Speak­ing from the IMF an­nual meet­ing in Bali, Mr Ham­mond said: “If we are able to get to a good deal for Bri­tain as we leave the Euro­pean Union I be­lieve there will be a div­i­dend – a deal div­i­dend for us.”
