EU demand €650m from NL; MPs demand explanation
The VVD and CDA want clarification from the Cabinet on the surcharge for the European Commission this year. According to the British newspaper Financial Times, it is an amount of 642 million euro. Prime Minister Mark Rutte confirmed the amount after talks in Brussels. "This in itself is a regular recalculation, as has happened for many years. This is not new. It happened, it does not surprise us, but the very high amounts do. That's never happened before." says Rutte.
Naheffing EU-afdracht verkeerde boodschap op verkeerd moment. Raar verhaal. Kabinet opheldering gevraagd. Lijkt op straf voor goed presteren— Mark Verheijen (@markverheijen1) October 23, 2014
