Cameron Braces For EU Referendum Showdowngo

David Cameron will face a Commons showdown later over his plans for a referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union.

A backbench Tory amendment expressing "regret" at the lack of an EU referendum Bill in the Queen's Speech has been selected by Speaker John Bercow and will be put to a vote tonight.

The Prime Minister insists he is "profoundly relaxed" about the prospect, despite scores of Tory MPs expected to support the amendment.
