At the February European Council, the Government negotiated a new settlement, giving the United Kingdom a special status in a reformed European Union. The Government's position is that the UK will be stronger, safer and better off remaining in a reformed EU. We are better off thanks to the European Capitals of Culture initiative that produced real benefits for Glasgow in 1990 and Liverpool in 2008.
