NotesArtwork not dated, date estimated from news. News : Rebellious Tory backbenchers have forced the government into a tactical retreat over Europe only days after deraling plans to privatise the Post Office. Senior Ministerial sources have indicated that Britain will not - as was expected - be able to ratify the EU Budget Agreement by the deadline at the end of the year because of the strength of Tory euro-eceptic opposition to the move. A highly placed Cabinet source has made clear that the Bill enshrining the EU's next 5 year budget into domestic law will not complette its passage before the end of the year. Ministers are resigned to moving slowly because of the threat of delays by Tory euro-sceptics, aided by a Labour leadership determined to expose Conservative divisions who hope to stage a drawn-out Parliamentary struggle over the Eruopean Finance Bill in much the same way as they held up passage of the Maastricht Treaty. [George Brock and Nicholas Wood, The Times, 8th November 1994]
