Ministers allowed freedom on EU referendum campaigning

David Cameron is to allow ministers to campaign for either side in the referendum once a deal is reached on the UK's relationship with the EU.

He said the UK government would make a recommendation to the British people on which way to vote in the referendum.

But he told MPs "it will be open to individual ministers to take a different, personal decision while remaining part of the government".
