Asked if the Prime Minister was pleased at the German support that seemed to be emerging for the new rescue scheme for the Eurozone, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that there was a lot of speculation but there was no specific proposal on the table. Our position was that stability of the Eurozone was in our interest.

Asked what the Prime Minister thought about Prime Minister Fillon’s calls for EU countries to harmonise their economic, fiscal and social policies, the PMS said that our position on the EU was as set out in the coalition agreement: we wanted to have a constructive engagement with the EU but we were very clear that we would protect our national sovereignty and we didn’t want to see any transfer of power from Westminster to Brussels.
