To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Penn on 4 January (HL4389), whether they will now answer the question put; namely, whether they will list in a single table in the answer to the question the constituent parts of the UK's financial commitments to the EU that the payment of c.£11bn sought to settle; and how much of that c.£11bn relates to each of those parts.
