STATEMENT ON EU COUNCIL

- Monday, 12th December 2011

 

Mr Peter Lilley (Hitchin and Harpenden) (Con): Does my right hon. Friend agree that the best way to increase one’s influence within Europe and, indeed, within a coalition Government is to set up one’s position and stick to it?

The Prime Minister: I am very grateful to my right hon. Friend for that question. I always find this slightly surprising. Before going to Brussels I set out exactly what I was going to do and what I would do if I could not get the safeguards. I did exactly what I said I was going to do, but apparently in politics these days that is very surprising.
