Ed Miliband says EU referendum 'unlikely' under Labour

An EU referendum is "unlikely" to take place if Labour wins the next general election, Ed Miliband has said.

In a speech in London, the Labour leader said there was an "overwhelming economic case" for EU membership.

But he said he did not back an "inexorable" process of political union and Labour would "guarantee" an in-out referendum if it was being asked to transfer more powers to Brussels.
