EU referendum: Norway 'lacks influence in EU decisions', says its PM

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has told the BBC she would like her country to be part of the EU because it lacks influence over important decision making.

"We are integrating the laws they are making for the single market…but basically we have left part of our democracy to Europe," she said.

Ms Solberg told the BBC's Ben Wright she wanted the UK to stay in the EU.

Asked if she thought Britain could retain access to the single market without being subject to free movement of people, she said: "To believe you'll get everything you want without giving something back does not happen in any political body."
