asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what arrangements he has made for supply of the seven volumes of the EEC budget to the Vote Office of the House of Commons; and how many sets of such volumes were supplied up to 20th January 1975.
Six sets of the seven volumes of the draft general budget of the Communities, and of an updating statement, were delivered to the House of Commons Library on 22nd October, additional copies being supplied then and later for the use of Members of the Select Committee on European Secondary Legislation. A further six sets were sent to the Vote Office on 20th December. At each stage of the progress of the budget through the Community institutions, including the Budget Council, 100 copies were supplied to the Vote Office of full explanatory memoranda produced by the Treasury. The 1975 budget as finally adopted will be printed in due course in the Official Journal of the European Communities.
