Britain's Cameron to drop demand in EU vote talks: reports

British Prime Minister David Cameron is prepared to drop a key demand in order to strike a deal on renegotiating Britain's membership of the European Union, several newspapers reportBritish Prime Minister David Cameron is prepared to drop a key demand in order to strike a deal on renegotiating Britain’s membership of the European Union, several newspapers reported Sunday. London had sought to limit access to state benefits for migrants from within the EU, but that demand could be set aside if other ways of limiting migration were agreed instead, the Telegraph, Times and Independent reported, citing government sources. The idea, which would have forced EU migrants to wait four years before accessing state benefits in Britain, had been a key point in Cameron’s renegotiation of Britain’s membership of the 28-member bloc, ahead of a referendum on whether the country should remain in the EU due by the end of 2017.
