A motion from Lincolnshire Conservatives calling for a referendum on EU membership has been presented in Brussels.

County council leader Martin Hill is writing to David Cameron, calling for a national poll Britain's membership of the European Union in 2014.

County Councillor Ray Wootten took a copy of the motion to MEP Emma McClarkin at the European Parliament.

"I had planned a visit to Brussels to raise concerns from residents and when this motion came along I thought I would take along a copy and present it to Emma McClarkin," he said.

    and why doesn't martin hill start focusing on proper issues instead of going on and on about a referendum that isn't going to sort out the economic problems we have in this region. What on earth is going on with the Eastern Bypass?? which Lincoln desperately needs and will create needed jobs, yet here we are with this superb leader of ours who quite frankly doesn't have a clue. Whats his problem going to be next week? wind farms again?

    At least the Tory Councillors got a nice free lunch when voting on something that has nothing to do with them and oh look, one of them got a nice all expenses paid free day trip to Brussels. it ain't just a Euro gravy train.

    "She fully supported it and she said she would raise the issue with David Cameron." - - - I was under the impression that David Cameron supported one till he got into power. Still it's only costing us about £50 Million a day to be told what to do.
