1. Will be reduced payments for the children of migrant workers from EU countries, if their parents live in Britain, and children abroad (mainly talking about children of poles working in Britain). Currently British law obliged London to Fund such payments.

For new applicants the new normal will be distributed without delay, and for 34,000 children who already receive support, there will be a transition period until 2020.

2. You will modify the EC Treaty, with a clear indication that further strengthening of political integration the EU will not apply to London: «Britain can never be forced into political integration».

In fact, the rule is only a political slogan, which should reassure British voters. Britain and now does not participate in deeper integration in the EU. In particular, it is the only one in the EU, are exempt from the obligation to introduce a common currency (the Euro) in the future.

Cameron also stressed that Britain will never be part of the future European «superquadra», discussions which are now underway: «Our internal Affairs will remain our internal Affairs. And we are never going to participate, for example, to create a common European army».

3. Right entered Britain for seven years to stop existing payments to migrants in case migration will reach the «extremely high level». That level, according to the European Commission, was formed in Britain now. At the same time, for the seven years limit must be removed.

According to Cameron, it is expected that the migrants will not receive any payments during the first four years in Britain.

4. Britain will gain the right to use «extraordinary protective measures» for the city of London, to stop possible relocation companies in mainland Europe and ensure that British business does not suffer discrimination due to the fact that it is outside the Eurozone.

Despite that agreement, in June 2016 to be held a referendum on British membership of the EU. These measures, however, according to Cameron, will receive the majority of votes in support of the country’s membership in the European Union.
