He replied: “The only thing I’d say about this is to echo what my friend and colleague David Davis [the Brexit secretary] has said, which is that there’s a kind of unity in these negotiations.

“You’d expect all this to be done as a bundle, as a package as they say in Brussels. Rien est acquis avant que tous soit acquis – nothing is agreed until everything is agreed. 

“And so you’ve got to look at the money, the whole thing, the free trade arrangement you’ve got to look at that as a package.”

EU officials are also adamant that the UK has no claim to any of the project’s hundreds of billions of pounds worth of assets because they belong to the bloc as a separate legal entity.
