If this Bill passes, and I believe it can pass, then we will have set out in law the need for a referendum on an in-out basis before the end of 2017.
That is my policy, that is what I want to see and I'll do everything I can to support this Bill and get it through the House of Commons so that we can renegotiate in Europe and then put a real choice to people before the end of 2017.
That is the clear Conservative position that I will champion and I believe we will succeed.
