asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total amount raised from import levies from 1st January 1973 to 31st December 1974; and how much of this was sent to the EEC.

The total amount collected as import levies between 1st January 1973 and 31st December 1974 was £49,706,000; this includes a provisional figure for December 1974. Under the Treaty of Accession, the United Kingdom's contribution to the Community budget in 1973 and 1974 was determined as a percentage of budget expenditure for those years and not by the amount of import levies and duties collected.
