Cameron has outlined plans to stop immigrants from inside Europe claiming various benefits in a move criticised and rubbished by Brussels.

It is possible some of our biggest oil companies have been breaking the rules. If true drivers may have been paying over the odds for years.
Home Secretary Theresa May says EU countries should be able to put a cap on immigration numbers if they believe that there are issues around economic migration.
Speaking at a meeting in Brussels, she said:
" I think we need to be able to slow full access to free movement until we can be sure that mass migration is not going to take place.
"That, for example, could be by requiring new member states to reach a certain level of income or economic outlook ahead before full free movement rights are allowed."
The Home Secretary is to challenge her European counterparts to change the way free movement rules work across the region at a meeting in Brussels.
Theresa May will tell justice and home affairs ministers of fellow European Union (EU) member states the UK is frustrated by the European Commission's failure to tackle free movement abuse.
Ahead of the meeting, Mrs May discussed measures to tackle this abuse such as applying a cap on numbers if European immigration reaches certain thresholds.
The 1.7 billion euros (£1.4 billion) fines for eight major banks imposed by the European Commission for rigging benchmark interest rates is to be ploughed back into the EU's budget, says ITV News Business Editor Laura Kuenssberg:

The Prime Minister said he thinks public understand the importance of his role in bringing trade delegations to China and other growing markets as the financial crisis still engulfing Europe has shown UK businesses "can't just rely" on EU markets and must look "further afield" for opportunities:
I think the British public have a very good understanding of what I describe as the long term plan. They know that Britain, having had some very difficult years, having suffered badly in the crisis, is on a mission to rebuild.
That means sorting out your finances at home and getting the deficit under control. But it means making your way in the world and it means recognising that we can't just rely on European markets. We have to go further afield and we have to play to our strengths and win.
I think people have a very good understanding of that.
Prime Minister David Cameron will push for a free trade agreement between the European Union and China which he believes could be worth billions of pounds a year.
Mr Cameron's call came as he arrived in Beijing at the head of the largest British trade delegation ever to visit the country, which has emerged to become the world's second biggest economy in recent years.
The European Commission is due to begin investment treaty negotiations with China early in the New Year to cut back some of the barriers to trade.
But, in talks with premier Li Keqiang, Mr Cameron was set to become the first EU leader to champion a full-scale free trade agreement, which Downing Street said could be worth £1.8 billion annually to the UK alone.
The proposal is likely to face stiff resistance from some EU states, who fear their markets would be flooded with cheap Chinese imports.
It would be a "truly dreadful outcome" for both the UK and the EU if the result of the referendum - promised by Mr Cameron if the Tories win the next general election in 2015 - is that Britain decides to leave, Sir John Major said.
Of course, we would survive, but there would be a severe price to pay in economic well-being, in jobs and in international prestige.
In a world of seven billion people, our island would be moving further apart from our closest and largest trading partners, at the very time when they, themselves, are drawing closer together. This makes no sense at all.
Britain will pay a "severe price" if it votes to leave the European Union, Sir John Major warned.
The former prime minister argued that the exit could cost billions, and would leave the UK isolated internationally yet still required to implement EU regulations it had no part in framing.
Sir John - whose premiership was scarred by long-running battles with Tory Euro-sceptics - backed David Cameron's strategy of renegotiating Britain's membership before staging an in/out referendum as the best way of finally resolving the Europe issue.
David Cameron said it was "totally inappropriate for unelected officials to complain about legitimate concerns" after a European Commissioner attacked his pledge to clampdown on benefits for migrants.

The Prime Minister was accused of an "unfortunate over-reaction" after he pledged to stop new arrivals from the EU getting out-of-work benefits for three months.
In an outspoken intervention, European employment commissioner Laszlo Andor warned the Prime Minister that Britain risked becoming seen as the "nasty country" of the EU.
He also cautioned Mr Cameron not to interfere with the rules underpinning the European single market, saying it could be the start of a "slippery slope".
Immigration from the European Union (EU) increased to 183,000 in the year ending June, the Office for National Statistics said, up from 158,000 the previous year.
There was a "statistically significant" increase in citizens arriving for work-related reasons from the so-called EU15, which includes Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.
Immigration from outside the European Union (EU) saw a "statistically significant" drop to 242,000 in the year to June, from 282,000 the previous year.
Net migration into Britain has risen year on year for the first time in two years, fresh figures have shown. A net flow of 182,000 long-term migrants came to the UK in the year to June, up from 167,000 in the year to June 2012, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said.
The increase was driven by a drop in the number of migrants leaving Britain as emigration fell to its lowest level since 2001, the ONS said.
Some 503,000 people immigrated to the UK in the year ending June, compared with the 517,000 people who arrived during the previous year, while 320,000 emigrants left the country, down from the 349,000 the previous year.
