Proposals outlining new operational structures have been drawn up but reportedly will not be unveiled until after 23 June
The Times reported that the proposals will not be seen by European leaders until a summit on 28 June – almost a week after the UK referendum.
It is feared that doing so before the vote could boost the leave campaign.
To keep the lid on the Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy proposals, only a small number of diplomats are allowed to view the documents in a sealed room and must leave electronic devices outside, according to the report.

I have a troubling thought about where the combined EU military thing is going.
I've no proof, but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see UK regiments posted in France, Germany etc and Continental units here.
Why? It's the old Roman Empire model, your troops are more likely to follow orders to put down dissent in a place that is foreign to them than if they are confronted by their own countrymen.
At some point in the next twenty years, there will be at least one grass roots "We want out" movement in one of the member states that is too big for the local cops to deal with. How much safer for the political masters if they have a couple of regiments of foreign troops that they can put on the streets?
