The prime minister will use a visit to the Northern Future Forum in Iceland to dismiss claims by the Leave group that Britain could enjoy a special relationship with the EU on the lines of the accord negotiated by Norway.
Cameron will also reject a proposal supported by Boris Johnson for two EU referendums. The first one would be held, as planned by the prime minister by the end of 2017. But the second would be held at a later date on a new relationship between the UK and the EU after an initial no vote.
“The referendum will be definitive,” said one government source. “If the people of Britain vote to leave then we leave. If we vote to remain then we remain.”
