Mark Rutte cited estimates by the Bank of England that show the decision to quit the bloc has cost the average UK household £900 already.

He quoted the figure, produced by governor Mark Carney last month, during an exchange with Ukip leader Gerard Batten at the European Parliament yesterday.

“I’ve found in the Netherlands that this fact, but also the fact that it’s hurting our collective security, is the best argument why the others need to work more closely together.
