Britain to outline plans to opt out of EU justice: Reports
LONDON (AFP) - Britain is set to announce plans to opt out of a range of European Union justice and policing measures, including the European arrest warrant, according to newspaper reports on Sunday.
Home Secretary Theresa May was expected on Monday to confirm the government's plans to exercise its right to opt out of various EU measures before they come into force in 2014, The Sunday Times and The Sunday Telegraph reported.
Both newspapers said the coalition government would then seek to renegotiate to opt back into certain measures which it felt were in the national interest.
They added that the government was particularly keen to avoid signing up to a Europe-wide public prosecutor and the European arrest warrant.
