Ed Balls: Government policy has failed on every measure

Help

Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls says the government's economic policy has failed "on every measure, compared to what they said they would do."

He called on Chancellor George Osborne to make a swift "U-turn" on the economy, after growth forecasts were slashed in the Budget.

Mr Balls told the BBC the government was "only cutting taxes for millionaires... it's the wrong priorities and it's not working".
