HC Deb 13 November 1992 vol 213 c1000W
Mr. Milligan

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the effect on the United Kingdom net budget contribution to the EC of the accession of Sweden, Finland and Austria to the European Community.

Sir John Cope

Preliminary forecasts suggest that each country is likely to be a net contributor to the EC budget upon accession. If this were to be the case, their accession would tend to reduce the United Kingdom's net contribution to the EC budget.
