Volume 716: debated on Wednesday 27 January 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether the United Kingdom would be required, although not a member of the eurozone, to make a financial contribution to any financial rescue of Greece and any other member country of the eurozone; and, if so, why. [HL1207]

Membership of the European Union does not impose any obligation on the UK to contribute to any financial rescue, or accept the debt obligations, of any EU member state. There has been no request for UK support. Any such requests are considered on their individual merits.
