Pay more than we receive! ‘Absent’ EU blasted as French MEP points to UK vaccine success

Pascal Soriot, chief executive of AstraZeneca, has previously said that the early orders were a reason why deliveries to the UK were not held up in the same way as those to the European Union.

Mr Bay also claimed that “France pays much more money than it receives.

“When we pay €100 to the European Union, it gives us 60 back, and it even tells us how we should use it.”

According to the EU’s own figures, in 2018, France contributed €20.6billion (£17.5billion) to the EU budget.
