§ 13. Mr. Marlow
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will estimate the increase in the United Kingdom net contribution to the European Economic Community budget caused by the price increases of 1 April together with the monetary compensation amounts continuing at the average rate so far attained in the current year.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
Our initial estimates suggest that the price settlement together with EMS realignment slightly reduces our unadjused net budget contribution. On monetary compensatory amounts I have nothing to add to my reply to my hon. Friend on 16 March—[Vol. 1, c.35–6.]
