Cameron pledges to protect the City

PRIME Minister David Cameron has vowed to protect the City by blocking any revised EU treaty if European leaders do not provide safeguards for Britain’s financial services.

“I will not sign a treaty that does not have those safeguards in it, around things like the importance of the single market and financial services,” he told the BBC.

“If they choose to go ahead with a separate treaty then clearly that’s not a treaty Britain would be signing or amending. But if they want to use the European institutions then Britain will be insisting on the safeguards and the protections that Britain needs.”

Cameron agreed that “Eurozone countries do need to come together, do need to do more things together.”
