President Hollande

Asked if the EU budget was discussed during the Prime Minister’s (PM) bilateral meeting with President Hollande, the Prime Minister’s Spokesperson (PMS) told the assembled media that the PM had addressed this question during his press conference – there had been discussions about the forthcoming negotiations on the budget.

Asked if the French President still supported a real term freeze, the PMS replied that France’s position was a matter for the French Government, but there were further discussions to be had. The Commission’s proposal was already in the public domain and there was agreement that this was unacceptable. A process was in place where the proposal would be negotiated until the end of the year. That negotiation would involve another 25 countries, not just the UK and France.

On the matter of holiday homes, the PMS said that the PM was reassured that there would be no discrimination against British citizens who own property in France.
