Asked about EU negotiations, the PMS said that the PM had set out the Government’s position. He said that there needed to be better fiscal discipline and co-ordination in the Eurozone in order to promote confidence and underpin stability. He said that action was also needed to address underlying issues of competitiveness.

Asked about wider discussions, the PMS said that lots of discussions and debates were taking place and the Government would approach all of these in the same way: looking for ways to further our national interest.

Put that there appeared to be a change of heart about holding a referendum, the PMS said this was not the case.

Asked to explain safeguards for the city, the PMS said he would not go into specifics or set out the PM’s negotiating position before the talks took place. He said it was clear what needed to be done and the way to approach negotiations was to be practical and focussed, there were clearly a number of options.
