British Prime Minister David Cameron (2R) speaks with workers during a visit to Aberdeen harbour, ScotlandBritish Prime Minister David Cameron and European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker will try to thrash out a deal on migrant benefits on Friday in a final push for a reform deal to keep Britain in the EU. The European Union is expected to make its proposals on Monday in time to reach an agreement at a crunch summit in February, which would then allow Cameron to hold a referendum on membership of the 28-nation bloc in June. In a sign of the urgency of the talks, Cameron cancelled a visit to Denmark and Sweden to hold Friday’s working lunch with Juncker, while he will also have a hastily-arranged dinner with EU president Donald Tusk in London on Sunday.
