£1.7bn EU bill: Cameron likely to reject installment plan
November 7 , 2014
Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron has emphasized that he won’t accept any compromise formula on the £1.7 billion EU bill and warned that the row is pushing the UK towards an exit, media reports say.
He reportedly told his counterparts from northern Europe during a meeting in Helsinki that polls had indicated a growing anti-EU sentiment in Britain on account of the surcharge.
According to the new proposals, the UK can pay the bill next year in installments instead of at one go on December 1.
