20% cut in aid to UK
EUROCRATS secretly slashed EU grants to Britain by 20 per cent in just a year, analysis has revealed.
The UK lost hundreds of millions of pounds after the referendum while cash rocketed for Germany and France.
Experts said Brussels had made a two-year head start on Brexit, cutting funds before the UK had left in areas such as agriculture, climate change, migration and fisheries.
Records show the amount fell from £1.73billion in 2016 to £1.38billion last year. But cash for Germany rose 20 per cent to £1.72billion while grants to France rose 16 per cent to £1.37billion.
Accountancy group UHY Hacker Young partner Andrew Hulse said: “The Government needs to recognise this shortfall.”
