Thanks very much.
That has indeed done the trick:

in Control Centre=>Regional & Accessibility=>Keyboard Layout=>Xkb Options
there is a choice "Adding the EuroSign to certain keys".
On ticking this, the 3 options "Add the EuroSign to the 2 key",
"Add the EuroSign to the E key", "Add the EuroSign to the 5 key"
are enabled.
I've disabled the options for the 2 and 5 keys, leaving the E key,
and now AltGr-e does indeed give the euro symbol on my screen.
