David Cameron promises in-out referendum on EU

Prime Minister David Cameron has promised an in-out referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union by the end of 2017 - if the Conservatives win the next general election.

In a major speech in London this morning, he said the Conservative manifesto for the 2015 election will ask for a mandate to negotiate a “new settlement” for Britain in Europe, which will be put to voters in a referendum within the first half of the five-year Parliament.

But Mr Cameron said he will campaign “with all my heart and soul” for Britain to stay in the European Union when the referendum comes.

He warned voters that if the UK did decide to leave, it would be “a one-way ticket, not a return”.

What's your view? Should the UK stay in the European Union - or should it leave?

Have your say

the conservatives will never win the next election.the have already done enough damage. time for you to go packing.

How far would you go to look at a bird?

Very far. Excited when rare birds set up home here

I watch birds through the window and on TV. That's all

Birdwatching doesn't appeal to me. I'd go a long way to avoid a gull though
