HC Deb 07 February 1980 vol 978 c276W
25. Mr. Renton

asked the Prime Minister what subjects are likely to be raised at the next meeting of the European Council.

The Prime Minister

European Councils have no fixed agenda. But we normally discuss the economic and social situation in the Community and other topics of major interest. It is too early to say what these will be, but among them will certainly be the problem of our excessive net contribution to the Community budget.
