David Cameron has denied he has buckled under pressure from his backbench MPs over Europe. The Prime Minister says only his party offers a clear choice on Europe but critics say he's being dictated to by Tory MPs.

Speaking in the US, Mr Cameron told ITV News he thinks Britain should stay in the EU once changes are made to the organisation and Britain's relationship with it. He also insisted a draft Bill on an EU referendum was intended "all along".
