HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 c362W
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.

Private Health Insurance Schemes (Tax Relief)

28. Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce tax relief on subscriptions to private health insurance schemes.

Mr. Moore

I have noted my hon. Friend's suggestion.
