Brexit negotiations continue with new ideas

The EU has offered a compromise deal to David Cameron in an effort to break the deadlock on his reform demands.

The proposal would give the UK the right to apply a so-called "emergency brake" to halt EU migrants coming into the country.

But the British Prime Minister is still pushing for the right to ban new workers - arriving in the UK - from claiming benefits for four years: “My proposal remains on the table, until I see something equally potent being brought forward.

“But what is good is that others in Europe are bringing forward ideas to address this problem so we have better control of movement of people into our country.”
