Should the UK improve links with the EU?
Foreign Secretary William Hague is seeking to increase UK influence over the European Union by pushing for more British officials in senior EU posts. What are your views on Mr Hague's plans?
Speaking at the Foreign Office in London he argued UK representation in Brussels is declining and input waning. He said the UK represents 12% of the EU population but has just 1.8% of staff in entry-level positions at the commission.
Mr Hague has also called for a new focus on improving links with developing countries like India, China and Brazil.
Should Britain have more influence in the EU? What should be the UK's international goals? How crucial are relations between the UK and developing countries?
