EU Budget: Contributions

Question for Treasury

UIN 54274, tabled on 3 June 2020

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what estimate he has made of the UK's (a) gross and (b) net contributions to the EU in the event that the transition period is extended for (i) 2021 and (ii) 2022.

The Government has been very clear that it will not accept an extension to the transition period. Indeed, Section 33 of the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Act 2020 prohibits the Government from extending the transition period.

Both the EU and the UK have committed to agreeing a future partnership by the end of 2020 in the Political Declaration and that is clearly in the interests of both sides.
