Cameron: £9m pro-EU campaign is 'money well spent'

David Cameron has said he will "make no apology" for spending more than £9 million of taxpayers' money on a pro-EU campaign including leaflets to be delivered nationally ahead of a referendum on the issue.

Mr Cameron said the cash was "money well spent" during a question and answer session with students at Exeter university today.

"I make no apology for the fact that we are sending to every household in the country this leaflet which sets out what the Government's view is and why we come to that view," he said.

I don't want anyone to go to the polls not knowing what the government thinks and I think that is money well spent. It is not in my view just legal, it is necessary and right.

– David Cameron
