Mr Redwood’s intervention during the Statement on the European Council, 30 June 2014

Mr John Redwood (Wokingham) (Con): I congratulate the Prime Minister on—[Interruption.] It is now time for all sensible political leaders to argue for the UK. We are not in the euro and we do not want to join the political union. Only with strong leadership can we have a relationship that makes sense for Britain.

The Prime Minister (Mr David Cameron): I thank my right hon. Friend for his remarks. I think that the Opposition were rather hoping that we would all be falling out over the European issue, but they can see that we are absolutely united in doing the right thing for Britain.
