Referendum to ask should Britain ‘remain’ member of EU


LONDON: Voters will be asked, “Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union?” in a referendum to be held by 2017, the British government announced on Thursday. The wording is laid out in legislation for the referendum, to be introduced into parliament on Thursday by the centre-right government of Prime Minister David Cameron. “It will pave the way for the British people to have their say for the first time in forty years on our place in the EU,” a source in Cameron’s office said. “The question is clear. It will be for voters to decide whether to stay or leave.”
