Britain must take a "hard-headed" approach to the problems facing the EU, Labour leader Ed Miliband said today as he sought to pile pressure on the Prime Minister ahead of a crunch EU budget summit next week.
Mr Miliband, who last month joined forced with Tory rebels to defeat the Government over its strategy, said Labour must not ignore the legitimate concerns of eurosceptics.
He told The Sunday Telegraph that reform was needed on the budget, on immigration rules, state aid restrictions and austerity measures, but declined to promise a referendum on the UK's future within the EU.
"What I would say is: never shrink from being open about the problems of the European Union", he said.
