Douglas Alexander MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, commenting on reports of Nick Clegg’s concern about David Cameron’s ‘empty chair’ approach towards EU economic policy, said:

“British business needs more than an empty chair in Europe especially when the Tory-led Government’s economic policy is based on an export led recovery.

"David Cameron shouldn’t let a bad compromise between Tory Eurosceptics and Liberal Europhiles prevent him from speaking up for Britain's interests."
