British Prime Minister Addresses Parliament on EU Summit

London
Monday, July 2, 2012

British Prime Minister David Cameron returned to the House of Commons after attending last week’s two-day summit with European leaders to discuss the region’s debt crisis. Leaders from the 27-member European Union agreed on banking and financial measures to assist struggling economies, like Spain and Italy. Prime Minister Cameron has rejected the calls for a referendum that would take the UK out of the EU. He told members today in the House of Commons that there is a “real benefit” in staying in the Union but the UK should seek to have “looser relationships” within the European Union. The UK is not part of the 17-member eurozone, but is a member of the European Union.
