HC Deb 14 November 1984 vol 67 c241W
61. Dr. McDonald

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if the 1984 ad hoc British rebate agreed at Fontainebleau is included in the draft 1985 Community budget.

Mr. Rifkind

No. It was confirmed at the Foreign Affairs Council on 2 and 3 October that our 1984 rebate should be made on the revenue side by abatement of our VAT contribution, as agreed at Fontainebleau.
