HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 cc508-9W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to what extent his inability to give details of how much of the 1973 EEC information budget is to be spent in the United Kingdom results from the failure of the EEC Commission to provide this information.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

I have nothing to add to the replies I gave the hon. Member on the same subject on 28th June and 6th July.

Mr. Shore

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will show, separately, in million units of account, the total budget of the EEC and, within it, the cost of the common agricultural policy, including the amount budgeted for the Guarantee and Guidance Section, as already agreed for the year 1973, and the EEC forecasts for 1974 and 1975.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

I will write to the right hon. Member.

Mr. Marten

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the proposed payment of an extra sum to the guarantee section of the EEC budget.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement which my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster made earlier today.
