Labour have called the nomination of Lord Hill as the UK's next European Commissioner "a shambles".
David Cameron's choice has come under further scrutiny after it was announced Lord Hill would be selling his shares in a lobbying firm to avoid accusations of a conflict of interest.
Shadow Europe Minister Gareth Thomas said: "David Cameron's approach to Europe goes from bad to worse."
"After his complete failure to stop Jean-Claude Juncker becoming Commission president this shambles will not help in rebuilding our influence to secure crucial reforms."
