PMQs: Cameron taunts Labour over EU referendum position


The Labour front bench was teased by David Cameron who asked opposition MPs to put their hands up if they wanted a referendum over Europe.

Newspaper reports have suggested half of them want the party to back a public vote over the UK's role in or out of the EU.

The party position has been not to call for one now, although the Labour for A Referendum group was launched on Tuesday.

Responding to a question from Conservative backbencher Eleanor Laing, the prime minister was cheered as he asked: "Hands up! Who wants a referendum?" before claiming the "people's party does not trust the people".
