So reports The Times:
Britain would face a huge bill from the EU and may still have to obey many of its rules should voters opt to leave Europe, an independent analysis has warned.
In an assessment that will worry MPs hoping to take the UK out of the EU, a review by House of Commons officials concluded that Britain would “almost certainly” have to settle its “financial account” with Europe.
The review also concluded that despite EU legislation being one of the main bugbears for voters opposed to Europe, “in practice the UK is likely to keep many EU rules”…
It warns that Britain could face a big EU bill after leaving as a result of projects already in the pipeline that rely in part on British money.
