On the brink of an historic agreement: EU leaders poised to agree cut to seven-year budget
Andrew GriceEuropean Union leaders are on the brink of an historic agreement to cut their seven-year budget today after marathon all-night talks in Brussels.
They edged towards agreeing the first-ever reduction in EU spending in what David Cameron would claim as a victory for the calls for budgetary restraint by him and like-minded leaders.
Fifteen hours after a draft budget for 2014-20 was due to be discussed by the 27 leaders at their Brussels summit, firm figures were finally presented to them at 5am today by Herman Van Rompuy, who chairs the talks as president of the European Council.
