EU referendum vote: No 10 may table amendment
Downing Street has held out the possibility of tabling its own amendment to Monday's vote on whether to hold a referendum on the UK's membership of Europe, as the leadership of all three main parties set out why they did not want their MPs voting in favour of the poll.
The prospect of a vote in favour of a referendum had been a distant possibility before the middle of this week when only two options were being offered.
But in a motion tabled by backbencher, David Nuttall, the option of a referendum by May 2013 was put forward, arguing the public should have three options in a referendum: keeping the status quo, leaving the European Union, or reforming the terms of the UK's EU membership.
