HC Deb 17 June 1982 vol 25 cc347-8W
Sir Anthony Meyer

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer through what mechanisms the refunds of the United Kingdom's net contribution to the Community budget will be funded; how the burden of financing them will be divided between the member States; and if they will be paid to the United Kingdom as straight cash payments or through more supplementary measures schemes.

Mr. Ridley

The Council conclusions of 25 May provided for the United Kingdom's refunds for 1982 to be funded from the Community budget. The financing shares and payment details are still under discussion.
