Redwood cancels book launch

Click to follow
John Redwood, the former Cabinet minister and Conservative leadership challenger, has been forced to cancel the launch of his book on the single currency after accusations that it would form an alternative manifesto for his party.

Although there will not now be a press conference to mark the book's publication, it is available in the shops. Mr Redwood's opposition to a single currency contradicts his party's official stance, which is that Britain should "negotiate and decide".
