Labour could back Europe referendum says Rachel Reeves


The shadow chief secretary to the Treasury said Labour could hold a referendum when Britain's relationship with a revamped eurozone became clearer.

Rachel Reeves said David Cameron's position on Europe was "a shambles" and a vote was not the right priority while the UK was in recession.

She said: "Once we know what the eurozone looks like, we can have a discussion about whether it is appropriate to have a referendum."
