Former UK Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, initiated UK rebate. The reason for UK rebate was to compensate the UK for its contribution towards Common Agricultural Policy. This was because other European members benefited much more than the UK did; the UK’s farming sector forms a much smaller part of its GDB as compared to some of the other members of the European Union.
With the entry of newer members to the European Union, there has been greater pressure to scrap the UK rebate. The reason for members opposing the UK rebate is because there will be greater strain on the Common Agricultural Policy as well as the European Union Budget. However, scrapping of the UK rebate is hardly likely to take place because of the stiff opposition to such a suggestion. Reinforcing this is the fact that the UK has veto power in these matters in the European Union.
On both sides of the UK rebate, there are arguments about distortion created. On one hand, it is said that UK rebate distorts UK funding agreements with the European Union. On the other hand, it is argued that there is more distortion caused by the Common Agricultural Policy than the UK rebate. Whatever the arguments are, it is most likely that the UK rebate will not be terminated as long as it has support at home in the UK, even though Tony Blair has agreed to review the UK rebate.
