Speaking in a press conference after the European Council Summit early on Friday, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said that “he was not informed” about the EU’s request for an additional 2.1 billion contribution from the UK towards the EU budget.

“It’s the first time I hear about this and I have not yet received any report about this issue,” Barroso said.
