David Cameron has mounted a defence of his EU reform deal after it was questioned in the Commons by London Mayor Boris Johnson.
Mr Johnson asked how the package would restore UK sovereignty and curb EU regulations – having earlier said the PM was “making the best of a bad job”.
The PM said the draft deal would make Britain “stronger and better”.
And he told the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg he was “happy to be judged” on it, describing it as a “big step forward”.

UK-EU deal: What Europe thinks
The prime minister faced two hours of questions from MPs on the draft agreement unveiled by the EU which paves the way for the UK’s in/out referendum.
Responding to Mr Johnson, he jabbed his finger on the despatch box to emphasise his point, telling his Conservative colleague: “I am not saying this is perfect, I am not saying the European Union will be perfect after this deal – it certainly won’t be – but will the British position be stronger and better? Yes it will.”
