Prime Minister David Cameron said on Saturday he would hold a referendum on Britain’s membership in the European Union on June 23.
“I will go to parliament and propose that the British people decide our future in Europe through an in-out referendum on Thursday the 23rd of June,” he said.
“My recommendation is clear. I believe that Britain will be safer and stronger and better off in a reformed European Union.”
Cameron, speaking outside his Number 10 Downing Street residence, clinched a deal with other European Union leaders at a summit in Brussels which he hopes will keep the country in the bloc.
He met with his -cabinet on Saturday morning which agreed that the government’s position would be to recommend that Britain remains in the EU.
