HC Deb 21 March 1985 vol 75 c597W
39. Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is satisfied with the effectiveness of the arrangements to ensure that the United Kingdom will receive its £600 million rebate from the EC in the current year; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ian Stewart

The Fontainebleau summit agreed that the money should be paid to the United Kingdom in 1985 and the Council has unanimously reaffirmed that commitment since. The exact method of financing is still under discussion.
