§ 27. Mr. Marlow
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of the total net annual cost of United Kingdom membership of the European Economic Community, including the cost to the consumer of agricultural commodities above world market prices.
§ Mr. Ian Stewart
The average annual direct budgetary cost of the United Kingdom's membership of the Community over the last three financial years was some £330 million. Estimates of the costs to consumers of the common agricultural policy are necessarily subject to large uncertainties, but at current support levels the costs are substantial.
§ 28. Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce tax relief on subscriptions to private health insurance schemes.
