Nadhim Zahawi raises concerns about closer integration of eurozone countries

Nadhim Zahawi questions the Prime Minister about the protection of EU states that are not members of the eurozone as the eurozone members look at closer integration.

Nadhim Zahawi (Stratford-on-Avon) (Con)

Constituents and families will be thinking about what the future holds. All four tranches of the agreement are important to all our constituents, but the most significant is the protection for non-euro countries. Will the Prime Minister assure the House that he will look at the detail—the devil is in the detail—to make sure that there are no loopholes and that, as the eurozone countries integrate, we are protected and not discriminated against?

The Prime Minister

I will certainly do that. It will be a complex negotiation. The eurozone counties want the ability to integrate further and to know that we are not trying to block the action they need to take, but clearly we want to make sure that we, as members of the single market, are not disadvantaged.
