David Cameron travels to Brussels today ahead of the latest EU summit on the eurozone crisis. He will join the start of a summit billed as a low-key assessment of the economic prospects and the chances of kick-starting growth.

On the summit table for agreement before leaders leave Brussels on Friday are draft conclusions including a pledge to achieve a "fully functioning Digital Single Market by 2015", which could generate additional growth of 4% by 2020.

The Prime Minister will say that, in addition to establishing a single market for the digital economy, measures are needed to complete other unfinished and potentially lucrative parts of the single market policy, from opening up services to bearing down on unnecessary rules and regulations.

There will be talks on eurozone banking union, with Mr Cameron continuing to endorse closer eurozone integration as long as the planned measures do not hamper the progress of the 27-nation single market.
