The Government have confirmed repeatedly that the treaty establishing a constitution for Europe would be ratified by the UK only after a positive vote in a referendum. However, there is no consensus at present among EU member states on the future of the constitutional treaty. The way forward will be discussed at the European Council in June. The Government make no presumption regarding the outcome of these discussions and will not speculate about their outcome.
