Key eurosceptic on EU bill 'ploy'

A Eurosceptic Conservative MP has said Conservative Party plans to publish a bill for an in/out referendum on EU membership will not be the best way to secure the confidence of the electorate.

A eurosceptic MP says Conservative Party plans to publish a bill for an in/out referendum on EU membership are "not good enough".

David Cameron's move comes amid pressure to show he is serious about a referendum pledge he made earlier this year.

However, John Baron believes the move does not go far enough, saying: "What we should have is legislation in this Parliament".

Mr Baron said although he "welcomes" the publishing of a bill, "a ploy" to avoid publishing a Government Bill "could well fail."
