In Annabelle Dickson’s article [EDP 24 May] our net cost of being in the EU is quoted as £8.5bn. This is the estimated figure for 2015. The actual figures for 2013 and 2014 were £10.5bn and £9.8bn respectively. The forecast for 2016 is £11.2bn. For a Government which is basing all its arguments on dubious forecasts I wonder why it is ignoring this one?
It is also interesting to note that the £11.2bn [£11,200,000,000] equates to £172 each year for every adult and child in the country giving a total cost in excess of £151,000,000 for Norfolk. For this we get absolutely nothing.
