Mr Van Rompuy's Chief of Cabinet was expressing a personal opinion, not the view of the European Council. This Government have made clear that there will be no further treaty change which transfers power from London to Brussels during the lifetime of this Parliament. My right honourable friend the Prime Minister has also stressed that we are not in the eurozone or going to join the eurozone during the lifetime of this Parliament. It is however in our interests not to stand in the way of major reform of the eurozone. The EU Bill, which we are currently taking through Parliament, will guarantee that any such future transfer of power or competence from the UK to the EU would require a referendum.
