The British finance minister plans a Brexit Budget in the event his country votes to leave the EU. It contains higher taxes and cuts to services.
EU budget chief Günther Oettinger says he wants Berlin to pay at least 3 billion euros more to cope with new tasks after Britain leaves the bloc. But he said that meant just 10 cents a day more for everyone in Germany.
UK Brexit Minister David Davis' speech in Vienna sought to reassure EU leaders. Brexit would not lead to an Anglo-Saxon race to the bottom and Britain would not be plunged into a Mad Max-style world, he said.
Germany will need to pay an extra €3.8 billion into the EU's coffers once Britain leaves the bloc. A new report, which is likely to rile German taxpayers, suggests France and Italy will face much lower budget hikes.
