Martin Horwood: Britain's number one priority should be helping Eurozone leaders to find a way forward

"Britain's number one priority should be helping Eurozone leaders to find a way forward in the Eurozone crisis and we shouldn't be threatening to disrupt or delay the process.

"Britain is still deep in the process of cleaning up Labour's economic mess. Our economy is still fragile and the Eurozone crisis has the potential to damage the whole world economy and with it the British economy. It is completely reckless for Eurosceptic MPs to call for a British spanner to be thrown into the works of any rescue plans.

"This kind of posturing weakens the British position at the European Council and risks damaging our national interest."
