    German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron were set to clash with French President Francois Hollande on Thursday.

    Germany and Britain are pushing France and its allies such as Spain and Italy to accept a smaller budget for the bloc over the next seven years.

    But Paris and its partner fear the axe may fall on tranches of agricultural and regional funding.
