Table 3.2 of the European Community Finances White Paper of July 2009 (Cm 7640) gives the latest projections for the UK's contributions to and receipts from the EC budget, including the value of our abatement, up to the financial year 2010-11. In line with all other public expenditure estimates, the Treasury does not currently publish forecasts beyond 2010-11. As usual, these figures will, where necessary, be updated in the forthcoming pre-Budget report.
