Mirror: Vote Leave rapped again over £350million figure in Brexit battle

Mirror: Vote Leave rapped again over £350million figure in Brexit battle

Britain's statistics watchdog has again rapped Vote Leave's use of figures in the EU referendum campaign.

UK Statistics Authority chairman Sir Andrew Dilnot accused the official Out group of using “misleading” numbers in the countdown to June 23.

Controversy centres around the £350million Brexiteers claim the UK sends to the EU every week .

Critics point out the figure does not take account of the British rebate from Brussels, nor cash returned from the EU to be spent in the UK.
