EU Rebate

Asked for a reaction to the European Commission’s proposal to phase out the UK’s rebate over four years from 2008, the PMOS said that our position on the rebate had not changed since last week when he had been asked questions about the issue, or indeed since the Treaty negotiations last month. He reminded journalists that there were still eighteen months of discussions to go. In answer to further questions, the PMOS said we had ensured, as part of the Treaty negotiations, that any decision on the rebate would need to be backed unanimously.
