LONDON Prime Minister David Cameron said on Saturday he will announce the date of the referendum on Britain's membership in the European Union after a cabinet meeting due at 1000 GMT.
"The Cabinet will this morning discuss the UK's new special status in the EU - afterwards I'll announce the planned referendum date," he wrote on twitter.
