EU Constitution

Asked whether the Government thought the EU Constitution needed a drastic rewrite, the PMOS said that the period of reflection would continue until June. It was better to allow that to happen. The Prime Minister had set out in his FT article in June that he believed that the people of Europe actually wanted was for the leaders to concentrate, having now achieved the budget which was no small thing, on what mattered to them which was improving the economic performance of Europe, addressing issues such as energy, which was becoming more relevant by the day and which the Prime Minister, himself, had prefigured in Hampton Court by putting it firmly on the agenda.

There were also other issues such as immigration. Those were the issues that the Prime Minister believed that the people of Europe wanted the focus on.
