UK in EU

In response to questions over the UK leaving the EU or staging a referendum on its membership, the PMS said that there were many benefits from remaining in the EU and the PM wanted to see an integrated single market, but he was not happy with the status quo. In this regard the position had not changed, but as integration progresses there would also be opportunities for us to look at our relationship with the EU and what was best for the UK’s national interests. The priority for the time being was to address the issues facing the Eurozone. The current situation had a chilling effect on the UK economy and it needed to be resolved. Asked what the PM’s aims were for the upcoming EU Council, the PMS said that banking union and growth would be discussed and the PM wanted to see progress on the single market.
