Prime Minister David Cameron has reiterated his plea to EU leaders to do more to stimulate growth and restore the continent’s competitiveness.
Speaking at today’s (Monday’s) European Union extra summit, the Prime Minister echoed calls he voiced in a speech to the World Economic Forum last week.
In the run up to the European Council, the Prime Minister has been pushing this agenda with a number of European leaders — Rutte, Kenny, Monti, Rajoy, Barroso, Van Rompuy and Merkel — who agree on the need to do more.
The Prime Minister’s pleas come just days after the Office for National Statistics confirmed a contraction within the UK economy, as critics increasingly voice concern over a lack of measures undertaken by the coalition government to nurture growth domestically.
