EU Council

On whether there was a read-out from the Prime Minister’s meeting with President Barroso, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister had done a broadcast clip after the meeting. On UK/EU engagement the Prime Minister had said that we should be focussing on the issue of substance and not on institutional reform and that people would see Britain playing a positive, active and engaged role in the European Union.

The PMS added that the Prime Minister had said that we had a strong and positive agenda, taking action on finance and that we would always defend the UK’s national interest and national red lines.

When asked about the significance of the Prime Minister’s joint article with the Prime Minister of Sweden, the PMS replied that the two had a very good relationship. The PMS drew peoples’ attention to the Prime Minister stating that the EU should be leading the way in driving international movement towards a new levy on financial institutions, similar to that which Sweden had already put in place.
