||<p>The Government has negotiated arrangements to provide assurance on payments made
under the financial settlement. This includes the right to appoint auditors working
on the Government’s behalf to assure the implementation of the financial settlement.
On the UK’s request, the EU will provide these auditors with information and assistance
to allow them to accomplish their task. The use of auditors will play an important
role in ensuring the UK only pays what it should under the terms of the agreement.</p>
