HC Deb 07 December 1983 vol 50 c179W
65. Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will insist that in future European Community rebates are effected by a reduction in future contributions rather than by the allocation of additional funds for the implementation of European Community policies within the United Kingdom.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

My hon. Friend's point is one which we have consistently urged on our partners. We shall continue to do so.
