Times gets it wrong: Cameron not told to “choose between the EU and the City”.

November 25th, 2011

Letter to the Editor published in the Times on 25 November 2011

Sir, Your front page story “Cameron told to choose between the EU and the City” (November, 24) misrepresents the views of President Barroso and the European Commission.

President Barroso has repeatedly called for strong financial centres in Europe, including in the City of London. President Barroso did not say to Prime Minister Cameron that he must choose between protecting the City of London and influence in the European Union.

Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen
Spokeswoman of the European Commission
