Answering questions on the EU budget, the PMS said that the PM had been clear on his position; there was no case for a real terms increase and he wanted a real terms freeze whilst protecting the UK’s rebate. At a time when European countries had to tighten their belts at home a freeze in EU budget was very important. Asked whether the PM would support a motion backing a restriction in the free movement of the labour market around the EU, the PMS said that the UK was a member of the EU, which promoted free movement of people.
