Cameron: 'We were promised a referendum'


European leaders meeting in Brussels have agreed a deal which they hope will secure the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, as debate continues over Tony Blair becoming first president of the European Union.

Conservative leader David Cameron has said it was an appointment and a role he did not support.

Mr Cameron added that the British people should have a referendum on the European constitution, and the Tories would act if the Treaty was passed.
