The Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg haslaunched a robust attack on Labour calling some of its members' stance on the EU budget "dishonest" and "hypocritical".
He said the Government has been consistent in its belief that "we cannot support a real increase in EU spend".
Britain was taking the "toughest negotiating stance of any EU state" but that a cut to the budget was not achievable, he said.
