Labour's economic plans: Rachel Reeves and John Redwood

Labour argues the economy needs a temporary stimulus to improve the chances of growth.

The Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury explained the party would also be tough on wasteful public spending.

Rachel Reeves said her party was "ready to complete the job of deficit reduction in the next Parliament".

Jo Coburn asked her to explain how the plans were different to government policy, while Conservative MP John Redwood suggested what the Chancellor might do for jobs and growth in next month's Budget.
