  • David Davis says MPs could block a £39 billion Brexit payment to the EU if Brussels does not offer  “substantive” information about the future UK-EU relationship in the withdrawal deal. 
  • The EU wants to negotiate the finer points of the future relationship during an implementation period.
  • However, Brexit Secretary David said on Thursday there was “no point having an implementation period if you’re not sure what you’re going to implement.”
  • The UK and EU hope to conclude a final Brexit deal by October.

LONDON — David Davis has warned the European Union that MPs could block a £39 billion Brexit bill — and a final Brexit deal — if “substantive” information on the future relationship is not included in the withdrawal deal.

The Brexit Secretary, speaking at a Wall Street Journal event in London, said the final deal — which both sides hope to agree by October — should include “a lot of detail” on the future relationship in key areas such as regulation and trade.
