That this House takes note of European Union Document No. SEC (2013) 370, a Statement of estimates of the Commission for 2014 (Preparation of the 2014 Draft Budget); agrees with the Government that at a time of ongoing economic fragility in Europe and tight constraints on domestic public spending, it is essential that the European Union budget reflects the consolidation efforts of Member States to bring deficit and debt onto a more sustainable path; agrees that the Multi-Annual Financial Framework (MFF) agreement secured by the Prime Minister at the February European Council represents a good deal for taxpayers, delivering an unprecedented real-terms reduction of €35 billion on the current period in the seven year payment ceilings to €908.4 billion and a real-terms reduction of over three per cent in payment appropriations, and protecting the UK rebate; welcomes the fact that the 2014 Draft Budget respects the MFF agreement; notes that the Commission’s proposal sees a cash reduction in payments of around €4.5 billion compared to the current budget for 2013; and calls on the Government to continue its efforts to limit the size of the Budget by pressing for further savings, particularly in administration, in order to get the best deal for UK taxpayers.
