Proposals to scrap workers’ rights as part of the UK’s EU renegotiation should be ‘fiercely opposed’, Liberal Democrat MEP Catherine Bearder has said.

“Cameron should focus on the big EU reforms that will deliver long-term growth and jobs in Europe, not transforming our country into a sweatshop Britain.

“Scrapping hard-won employment rights is no way to get a better deal for the UK or get the backing of partners in the EU.”

The paper says that the initiatives at risk are a clean air directive designed to reduce the health impacts from air pollution caused by vehicles, industry and power plants, and a waste directive that would set states the target of recycling 70% of waste by 2030.
