EU Budget

Answering questions on EU budget talks the PMS said that the Prime Minister spoke yesterday to President Van Rompuy, Enda Kenny and the Czech Prime Minister as we continued our work to find a deal on the EU Budget. Van Rompuy updated the Prime Minister on his discussions with other leaders and the Prime Minister set out his position. European spending could not be immune while we have made cuts at home. Although the proposals were a step in the right direction there were areas that needed to be improved, and we thought the UK’s rebate was fully justified. The Prime Minister was trying to get a deal, engaging with a number of European leaders and demonstrating where we thought it was possible to find savings in the EU budget.
