David Cameron: No EU reform deal at December summit
3 December 2015
From the section UK Politics
David Cameron has said that he does not expect an agreement to be reached on his EU reform aims at December’s summit of European leaders.
Downing Street said “good progress” had been made on the UK’s proposals but there were still “difficult issues” to resolve.
The prime minister’s spokesman said there would be “substantive discussions” on the reforms instead.
The UK’s PM has promised an in/out vote on EU membership by the end of 2017.
The prime minister is said to want to hold an early vote but he has said he will not set the timing of the poll until the negotiations, on Britain’s terms of membership of the 28-member bloc, are concluded.
