David Cameron has vowed to scrap Labour's Human Rights Act and replace it with a "British Bill of Rights", as part of his bid to reform Britain's relationship with Europe.
"The commitment to ever-closer union should not apply any longer to Britain - we do not believe in it," David Cameron said.
The prime minister said he will ask EU leaders for a legally binding agreement to end Britain's commitment to an ever closer union.
The UK will not stay in the EU if it becomes a "single currency club", David Cameron said.
He said the EU needed to embrace a model which allowed countries in and outside the euro to prosper.
The EU, he said, needed to be a more "flexible union".
David Cameron has said the European Union faces three major problems:
- A crisis in the eurozone
- Problems with competitiveness
- A crisis of legitimacy
"The changes we are arguing for are substantial," David Cameron says on his efforts to secure EU reform.
