EU Commission asks 2.1 bln euro to the UK and the EU budget needs some others adjustements. Why ?
Eulalia Rubio, senior research fellow at Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, tries to clarify the debate answering 4 questions:

1. How are the member states’ contributions to the EU budget calculated?
2. Why are the levels of these contributions regularly reviewed?
3. Why should the UK pay 2.1 bln euro more in 2014, whereas France could recover 1 bln?
4. What are the EU options in case of non-payment by a member state?
