    Nick Clegg launches the Lib Dem manifesto saying that in the event of a hung parliament he would try to deliver a "coalition with a conscience". We speak to the Lib Dem Energy Secretary, Ed Davey. In Scotland I've been hearing from voters in Glasgow South - which for decades has been a safe Labour seat, but which polls suggest may swing heavily to the SNP. The Scottish Labour leader, Jim Murphy, tells me he's confident that the party can bounce back. I ask the SNP leader, Nicola Sturgeon, whether the SNP's economic figures add up. As UKIP says they will reduce immigration, hold a referendum on EU membership and change the tax system,we examine their manifesto pledges. (This programme has been edited since broadcast)
