Nigel Farage has told ITV News he expects to see "some cosmetic concessions" from German Chancellor Angela Merkel when she meets the Prime Minister later today.
However, the Ukip leader stressed Merkel "will not budge" on the principle of freedom of movement in the European Union.
"What I expect to see are some cosmetic concessions, perhaps the Germans agreeing that maybe child benefit should not be paid to children living in other parts of Europe," Farage said.
"But even if Mr Cameron later on today stands on the steps of Downing Street and says, 'This is a great victory' it still won't work, because the Poles have made it clear they will veto it anyway."
