HC Deb 15 March 1983 vol 39 c127W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, when he next meets other European Finance Ministers, he will raise the issue of the supply by the European assembly of silver medallions to its members with a view to reducing the budget of the assembly in respect of such expenditure.

Mr. Ridley

No. It is the European Parliament's responsibility to execute its own budget, as it is for each of the Community institutions.
