Ashworth welcomes Cameron deal

Reacting to the Cameron deal, Richard Ashworth, MEP for South East England, said:

“I congratulate the Prime Minister for a successful conclusion of a very difficult negotiation. I welcome the fact that we will now have a straight-forward option to reject laws from Brussels that are not to the benefit of the British people. Furthermore, we can now reform our benefits system in a manner that is reasonable and fair to the British taxpayer. I believe that, in this fast changing and ever competitive world,  the best interests of this country, and of our children’s future, lies at the heart of the European Union.  I therefore welcome this deal and give my full support to the Prime Minister.”
