Cameron’s €2.1 billion surprise: “these calculations are done by the Member States” themselves, Commission explains

Jennifer Baker is joined by Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen – spokeswoman of the European Commission – to discuss David Cameron’s refusal to pay the United Kingdom’s €2.1 billion contribution to the EU budget.

On Friday 24 October, British Prime Minister David Cameron declared that the United Kingdom will not pay the €2.1 billion ‘surprise bill’. Ahrenkilde Hansen explains that “this is something the UK has been aware about for some time” as these “calculations are done by the Member States” themselves. However, the Commission will continue to clarify the context of these figures and EU finance ministers will hold a special meeting to discuss the concerns regarding the budget contributions, says the spokeswoman of the Commission.
