HC Deb 04 July 1983 vol 45 c24W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to his reply of 27 June, Official Report, c. 30—31, whether his estimates of the net contribution which the United Kingdom will be required to make to the EC in respect of the year 1983 will fall to be adjusted in view of the decision of the Commission on 29 June to seek a supplementary budget increase; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ridley

The Commission's latest estimate of our net contribution to the 1983 Community Budget took full account of the proposed supplementary Budget No. 2.
