00:08:48 Arrival and SOUNDBITE (English) David Cameron, British Prime Minister: Everyone wants to support the Greek government on the steps that they are taking. In the case of Britain I sought assurances that Britain wouldn't be pulled into a Eurozone package for Greece and I've received those assurances. But today is about the future of our economies in Europe, making them more competitive, having more deregulation, getting behind small businesses, encouraging trade. That's the real boost that the European economies need and that's what I will be fighting for today. 00:00:49
