Q54. Mr. Marlow

asked the Prime Minister by what date she aims to achieve a new long-term formula for the United Kingdom net contribution to the European Economic Community budget.

The Prime Minister

It may take some time to secure agreement to a satisfactory reform of the Community's budgetary system. Until then, the Government will insist on adequate refunds under the existing system.
