After outlining his plan, David Cameron is going to set to drop his demand for a crackdown on EU migrants’ benefits little more than two weeks, it emerged today.
As part of his promised renegotiation of Britain’s relationship with Brussels, the Prime Minister had told European Council president Donald Tusk he wanted EU workers in the UK to be banned from claiming in-work benefits or social housing for four years.
But Mr Cameron is likely to drop the key part of his renegotiation amid hostility from EU officials, it is reported.
They added: “The institutions are expecting David Cameron to come with new proposals to the European Council next month.
“There are possibilities to help but not on the specific point of four years.
“We understand that UK officials are working on something else.”
