The Prime Minister’s Spokesperson (PMS) began by informing the assembled members of the press that the Prime Minister (PM) had discussed various issues with the European President Herman van Rompuy, including the European economy, the review of European neighbourhood policy, stabilisation in Libya and the EU’s response to Arab Spring.

Asked if the PM and President Van Rompuy had discussed a new EU treaty, the PMS replied that the meeting had focussed on the topics he had previously mentioned. He said that there were no current proposals for a new treaty.

Asked if the PM would support further fiscal integration, the PMS replied that the Government’s priority was to protect our national interest. He stressed that in any discussion on further fiscal integration, the Prime Minister would be very clear to ensure that it did not undermine the single market or Britain’s national interest.

Asked for detail on the PM’s discussion with President Van Rompuy on stabilisation and Libya, the PMS replied that they had discussed EU progress in this area. The discussion had centred around the review of EU neighbourhood policy and the support that the EU provided through this.
