Reforming the membership in the UK is going to be a difficult task, but not hopeless, endeavor, David Cameron would be to say as he releases his set of demands later.
The prime minister’s goals will be set out by he in a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk, paving the method for detailed discussions among EU leaders.
He has committed to negotiating a “better deal” with the EU ahead of an in/out referendum by the end of 2017.

Meanwhile, Europe minister David Lidington has said the government expects to get a deal agreed as early as December, when a crucial summit of EU leaders takes place – but he warned that it was not too late to ensure precise timings.
