§ Mr. Canavan
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what has been the net contribution by 70W the United Kingdom to the common agricultural policy for each year since joining the European Economic Community.
§ Mr. Peter Walker
We contribute to the cost of the European Community Budget as a whole and not to the common agricultural policy separately. Information on our gross and net contribution is contained in pages 34–38 of the White Paper on the Government Expenditure Plans (Cmnd. 8175).
