The champion of the Tory right condemned the agreements as a "constitutional and political outrage". A spokes- man for Mr Redwood said of John Major and Malcolm Rifkind: "They have gone ahead and done exactly what they told the House of Commons they would not do. They have lied to the House of Commons. They traded in the veto, they agreed to the legalisation of the euro, and they agreed to the terms of the stabilisation pact."
The Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary were last night accused by John Redwood of lying to the Commons by reaching important agreements at Dublin, writes Colin Brown.
