Amid frantic wrangling, the PM will urge key players including Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and Jean-Claude Juncker to strike a bargain that he can sell in Westminster.

Mr Rees-Mogg continued: "We'll have to wait and see what the precise details are - naturally in the middle of a negotiation these matters are extremely sensitive as everyone is compromising to some degree and therefore to give negotiations the best chance of succeeding it's best to be discreet about them".
