UK: Referendum on EU Membership?

David Cameron has issued a final appeal to his MPs not to rebel in a vote on a referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union.

"All Conservative MPs, and Lib Dem and Labour MPs, were instructed to vote against the motion but 61 Tory MPs have signed it and may defy the party whip.

Mr Cameron, facing the biggest rebellion of his premiership, told them the approach and the timing was wrong.

"The time for reform is coming," he said ahead of the debate.

The motion calls for a referendum on whether the UK should stay in the EU, leave the EU or renegotiate its membership."
