Fact check: 'EU membership costs Britain £350 million a week'

A vote in favour of Brexit would save Britain £350 million a week currently sent to the EU that might otherwise be spent elsewhere - such as the NHS - according to former London Mayor Boris Johnson and Labour MP Gisela Stuart.

The UK pays around £250 million a week to the EU, not £350 million, according to fact-checking organisation Full Fact, working alongside ITV News.

It would be £350 million a week if it weren’t for the rebate, or discount, on what the UK has to pay.

The EU also spends some of the money we pay in - around £85 million a week - in the UK.

All sides agree that the economic impact of leaving the EU - good or bad - are far greater than the amount saved on the membership fee.
