asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the benefits have been per head in terms of net budget receipts or contributions for both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland for each financial year since 1976–77; what the levels are in the current year; and what they will be in subsequent years to 1981–82.

The estimated benefits per head in terms of net budget receipts from the EEC by the Republic of Ireland, based on Commission figures, are as follows:

£
197638·20
197783·63
1978110·52
1979110·.72
1980103·73
I regret that comparable information for Northern Ireland is not available since the overall net contribution for the United Kingdom cannot be apportioned on a regional basis.
