But the detailed assessment of life after March 2019 was released just six days before Mrs May sets out her Brexit blueprint in a speech in Florence, fuelling speculation about Mr Johnson's leadership ambitions.

He added: "It would be a fine thing ... if a lot of that money went on the NHS, provided we use that cash injection to modernise and make the most of new technology".

Johnson used the article to set out his vision for a post-Brexit Britain which enjoyed a low tax and low regulation economy, and which pays nothing to the European Union for access to the single market.

The United Kingdom, he warns, will not give "face to immigrants", but will open to "talent" exterior, even having to impose your own filters and by limiting ability of foreigners to buy houses in Uk, including " inhabitants of or 27 countries that can no longer be treated legally as foreigners".

But the arrangements should be "versatile and dynamic enough" to allow countries to respond to changing threats, it will say, and there must also be provision for dispute resolution.

Even Leave campaigner and Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston called the figure a "financial lie" while the head of the UK Statistics Authority, Sir Andrew Dilnot, said it was "potentially misleading".

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in an open letter layed out his plan for "glorious Britain after Brexit".

He argues: "The NHS is one of the great unifying institutions of our country".

The Home Secretary said she did not think Mr Johnson's article was a leadership bid and said her Cabinet colleague added "enthusiasm, energy, and sometimes entertainment". No, I didn't have time to read the piece'.

"We would not expect to pay for access to their markets any more than they would expect to pay for access to ours", he wrote.

He wrote that the referendum was "decisive" and said Britain must leave the EU's customs union and single market, the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and impose controls on borders.

And the Foreign Secretary himself said in a tweet on Saturday that he was "looking forward to PM's Florence speech" and was "all behind Theresa for a glorious Brexit". "The reason is that he, like the rest of the cabinet, like the prime minister, is all about wanting to get the best deal for the British people".

"It would be very nice if we could get a clear message on where the British are" on their financial obligations with the EU, Danish Finance Minister Anders Samuelsen said in an interview in Copenhagen on Friday.
