The Government have had a number of discussions with other member states on the proposed Creative Europe programme. However, we have been very clear that we cannot consider specific proposals for individual programme budgets until the negotiations on the overall multiannual financial framework for 2014-20 have been completed. We have also made it clear that we will be seeking reductions to the Commission's proposal for this programme, in line with our overall priority of limiting the EU budget to a real terms freeze.
