Writing in The Sunday Telegraph today, the Conservative leader says he understands voter scepticism but has underlined his key objectives his government is working on:

"I have set out, very clearly, the key areas we are renegotiating on: keeping our border controls; cracking down on benefit tourism; securing more trade; getting more control over justice and home affairs; and getting Britain out of 'ever closer union.

"Once we've negotiated, whatever the outcome, the British people will have the final say on our future in Europe, with that in-out referendum in 2017," he said.
