Over dinner in Brussels, Cameron said his demands for limits on welfare benefits for migrants from the European Union were necessary to limit immigration to what he said was his overburdened country and to stop Brussels encroaching on London’s powers. This is a fear that has undermined British public trust in the EU for a number of years,” Cameron told his counterparts, according to an account of his remarks released by British officials.
