How much does the European Union cost Britain? 2007

EU costing Britain £60.1 billion per year

Gordon Brown's Government is handing-over billions of pounds of taxpayers' money to the EU.
The combined direct and indirect costs of EU membership costs every man, women and child in Britain over £1,000 per year.

As a result of the Government's surrender of the UK's rebate, and the mounting costs of pointless EU regulation, this figure is set to rise even further.

Since Britain joined the ‘European Economic Community’ in 1973, Parliamentarians have time and again called for a cost-benefit analysis to prove or disprove the benefits of membership; successive Conservative and Labour governments have consistently refused on the grounds that the benefits are ‘self-evident’.

Set out in the latest Bruges Group research by Gerard Batten MEP the full costs to Britain have now been calculated.


The facts:


● Over-regulation costs Britain at least £26 billion per annum


● The Common Agricultural Policy costs Britain at least £15.6 billion a year


● Since 1973 the UK has made contributions to the EC budget of almost £213.6 billion gross or £66.3 billion net, by 2013 this figure will have increased to £299.8 billion gross, or £102.2 billion net


● Britain's accumulated trade deficit with the other EU member states since we joined has risen to £359.5 billion


This year membership of the European Union will cost Britain £60.1 billion gross, or £50.6 billion net


That is the equivalent for every man, women and child in Britain of over £1,000 per year gross or £843 net
That is:
