EU Budget

Asked whether it would be a Vichy-style’ surrender if the PM doesn’t get a reduction in the EU budget, PMS said the 6% increase is entirely unacceptable. This is the start of a process and discussions are ongoing. PMS added that it is important we build alliances within the EU so that we can ensure that we don’t have a 6% increase in the EU budget.

Asked whether the PM thinks he is better able to make these alliances without being a member of the EPP, PMS said that the PM has had lots of conversations with various leaders and these would continue this evening.
