Draft EU Budget 2011 — 13 Oct 2010 at 20:24

The majority of MPs voted against saying it would be wrong to increase Britain's contribution to the European Union budget; but supported the Government's efforts to maintain the 2011 EU budget at the cash levels equivalent to the 2010 budget.

The House of Commons was debating a motion introduced by Conservative Minister Justine Greening the Economic Secretary to the Treasury stating:

This vote was on an amendment proposed by Conservative MP Douglas Carswell which read:

  • (b), leave out from 'the financial year 2011' to end and add
  • 'is concerned at the above-inflation increase being made to Britain's EU budget contribution; believes that, at a time when the Government is poised to make reductions in public spending elsewhere, it is wrong to increase that contribution; and calls on the Government to reduce Britain's EU budget contribution'.
