    He also welcomed agreement on making the single market work better and on improving conditions for SMEs, including by cutting red tape. Mr Barroso added that 25 Member States had agreed on the detail of the "fiscal compact" set out in principle at the 9 December summit. He said that the European Commission had played an important role in ensuring this would not undermine EU institutions or distort decision-making on the single market, an issue which had been a concern for the UK.
