Future European Union Finances — 7 Mar 2005 at 19:00

I beg to move,

That this House takes note of European Union documents No. 11607/04, Commission Communication: Financial Perspectives 2007–2013, No. 11741/1/04, draft Decision on the system of the European Communities' own resources and draft Regulation on the implementing measures for the correction of imbalances, No. 11745/04, draft for renewal of the Inter Institutional Agreement on budgetary discipline and improvement of the budgetary procedure, and No. 11752/04, Commission Report: Financing the European Union-operation of the own resources system; supports the Government's efforts to refocus the European Community budget towards the Union's key priorities in line with the principles of subsidiarity and European Union value added and stabilise the budget at no more than 1 per cent. of European Union Gross National Income; shares the Government's concern over proposals for new flexibility instruments; opposes the Commission's proposals for a Generalised Correction Mechanism; and in particular supports the Government's view that the Commission's overall proposals are unrealistic and unacceptable.

I beg to move amendment (a), leave out from "resources system;" to end and add

'and reaffirms the need to continue EU structural funding.'.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 2, Noes 360.
