Hague: There will be an EU referendum if Tories win
Foreign Secretary William Hague has assured there will be a referendum on Britain's EU membership if the Conservatives win the 2015 General Election.
Speaking on the BBC's The Andrew Marr Show, Mr Hague pledged, "If David Cameron is Prime Minister after the next election there will be a referendum".
He said: "We're all very keen for this legislation to go through. The whole Conservative Party [is] absolutely united on holding a referendum before 2017 ... we will not be put off this by antics in the House of Lords or by the Labour Party".
"There will be that straight choice we now know at the General Election: referendum with the Conservatives or no referendum without the Conservatives".
