EU president Donald Tusk Tuesday unveiled key proposals to keep Britain in the bloc, including a four-year brake on benefit payments for migrant workers and protection for counties that do not use the euro currency.The proposals will not take effect until Britain avoids a so-called "Brexit" and votes to stay in the EU in the referendum, the draft adds.It would then have to be voted for by a qualified majority of EU states.The proposals further include a "red card" system that would allow a group of 55 percent of the EU's national parliaments to stop or change draft EU laws.Opinion polls are largely split on whether Britons would vote to leave the EU.It will be the British public's first vote on the country's EU membership since 1975, two years after it joined what was then the European Economic Community.
