HC Deb 19 May 1981 vol 5 cc56-7W
Sir Anthony Meyer

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the United Kingdom contribution to the European Community 1981–82 budget will represent as a rate in the £ sterling of domestic public expenditure for the same year.

Mr. Lawson

The estimated United Kingdom net contribution to the Community budget in 1981–82 is £450 million: representing about ½p in the £ of the planning total of public expenditure for that year on the definitions used in "The Government's Expenditure Plans 1981–82 to 1983–84" (Cmnd. 8175).
