EU Budget

Asked if given there seemed to be little movement this week by the French or the UK on the EU budget, the PMOS said that whenever this conversation came up before we had the presidency he had always declined to give a running commentary. That was the same for when we did have the Presidency. It was only early November and we still had over a month to go. Asked if given this lack of movement the informal discussions had been a waste of time, the PMOS said that as we had made very clear, the discussions this week were about setting out a framework for discussions, not about trying to reach a deal.
