LONDON - A referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union would add to economic uncertainty, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said in an opinion piece.

"The sudden holding of a referendum on leaving the EU would add to economic uncertainty at a time when businesses need all the certainty and confidence they can get," he wrote in an early edition of Saturday's Daily Telegraph.

The European issue, which blighted previous Conservative governments, could expose party rifts again on Monday when a parliamentary debate will decide whether the coalition government should hold a referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union.

Eurosceptics within Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative Party are threatening open rebellion after becoming disappointed by his failure to get tough on Europe.
