Plymouth views on Cameron EU referendum speech
The Prime Minister promises a simple in-out referendum on EU - after the next election – as he finally delivers his EU speech, delayed last week by the Algerian hostage crisis.
He says a new Treaty is needed - for the entire EU, not just for Britain.
The next Conservative Manifesto in 2015 will ask for a mandate for a Conservative Government to negotiate a new settlement with our European partners in the next Parliament. It will be a relationship with the Single Market at its heart.
"When we have negotiated that new settlement, we will give the British people a referendum with a very simple in or out choice. To stay in the EU on these new terms; or come out altogether. It will be an in-out referendum."

He says: "I am not a British isolationist, but I do want a better deal for Britain."
Cameron's 5 principles for the EU: Competitiveness, Flexibility; Repatriation of some powers; Democratic accountability; Fairness.
Earlier a leading member of the UK Independence Party in Plymouth told The Herald that David Cameron would be wasting his time by trying to negotiate a better deal for Britain inside the European Union,
"What nobody is facing up to is that there is no way the EU will give us anything back," Hugh Williams, a member of the UKIP national executive and deputy treasurer of the party, said.
"There is only one solution that would keep us happy is to come out of the EU – and David Cameron won't give us that."
Oliver Colvile, Conservative MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, said: "Yes, I am Euro-sceptic. But, no, I don't want us to leave the union.
"But I do want a fundamental realignment and renegotiation.
"We can't do this unilaterally. We need allies in the EU who want the same things as we do."
Wayne David, Labour's shadow minister for political and constitutional reform, told The Herald that the Prime Minister risked damaging British business by creating uncertainty over Europe.
