Iain Duncan Smith: Germany had UK-EU renegotiation veto


Germany had a “de facto veto” over David Cameron’s EU renegotiations, ex-minister Iain Duncan Smith has said.He told a newspaper that the PM ditched plans in 2014 to demand an emergency brake on migration after Germany objected.
Downing Street said curbs it negotiated on in-work benefits for EU migrants were a “more effective” way forward.
It comes as a British Chambers of Commerce survey suggests most business people back Remain but the gap with those backing Leave has narrowed.
