NEW THREAT TO MARGARET THATCHER REBATE
Jose Manuel Barroso wants to give the UK lump-sum cheques of £3.2billion for the next seven years
BRITAIN was bracing itself last night for a fresh attack from Brussels over its annual rebate on EU payments.
European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso wants to give the UK lump-sum cheques of £3.2billion for the next seven years in return for ditching the annual refund won by Margaret Thatcher in 1984.
The handouts are roughly equal to what Britain gets from the rebate. But analysts warn that the benefit would have to be negotiated every seven years.
Diplomats insist they will reject any offer that affects the permanence of the rebate.
Mr Barroso said: “The time has come to reform the system of rebates.” But the Centre for European Policy Studies said Prime Minister David Cameron is in a tough spot.
It said: “The Commission knows the rebate is so important to the UK that you can get a lot of other things you want by letting them keep it.”
