The European Commission has described some of the issues raised by Prime Minister David Cameron to reform the EU as “highly problematic”.

Some of Mr Cameron’s proposals for talks to make sure that Britain stays in the EU may be feasible, Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said, adding that others ranged from “difficult to worse”.

He specifically referred to proposals where freedom of movement would be limited by allowing the UK to restrict benefits for migrants from other member states.

Mr Schinas said: “Some things are highly problematic as they touch upon the fundamental freedoms of our internal market. Direct discrimination between EU citizens clearly falls into this last category.”
