"Membership of the EU gives market access to British firms, makes us more attractive to overseas investors, and underpins more than three million British jobs," he said.

"Britain must work with our allies for change from within to ensure the EU continues to take reform seriously.
"The isolationists are reckless with our prosperity and security. We cannot let them succeed."
