Britain must not be marginalised in Europe, says Cable

Business Secretary Vince Cable has said he is "pretty confident" the eurozone can resolve its immediate problems but warned the UK cannot be "marginalised" if the EU reshapes itself.

He told the BBC's Hardtalk programme he was "more optimistic" than most about the eurozone's survival and prospects.

He said Britain's interests would not be harmed providing the 27 European Union countries were maintained as a decision-making body.
