British taxpayers could be forced to contribute billions more to bail out bankrupt eurozone countries, the Chancellor has admitted.
George Osborne said he had agreed that Britain’s contribution to the International Monetary Fund to prop up ailing economies could rise.
The UK has already paid £12billion to prop up members of the single currency – through the European Union, the IMF and a direct loan to Ireland.
