Iain Duncan Smith calls for referendum on European 'fiscal union'
The Work and Pensions Secretary said that any major treaty change in the EU should be put to a British vote, a promise that the Prime Minister has so far carefully avoided making.
Mr Cameron will this week attend a summit in Brussels where Angela Merkel, the German leader, and Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France, will outline plans to resolve the eurozone debt crisis by integrating the tax and spending systems of countries using the single currency.
The far-reaching plans have put Mr Cameron under intense pressure to deliver clear changes in Britain's relationship with the EU in exchange for his consent to changing the EU's rule book.
