§ Mr. Marlow
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the estimated cost of the United Kingdom's net contribution to the EEC per head of population for the past full year and for the current financial year, respectively.
§ Mr. Lawson
The latest available estimates of the costs per head of the United Kingdom's net contribution to the Community budget are £11.20 in 1978 and £14.80 in 1979. These figures take account of refunds under article 131 of the Treaty of Accession.
