Nick Clegg on economy, house building, welfare, Qatada

Rebalancing of the UK economy was "taking longer longer than we could reasonably have hoped", Nick Clegg has said.

The deputy prime minister claimed the government was "absolutely injecting new initiative" as he spoke to Andrew Neil about building more homes and he claimed these were "starting to feed through the pipeline".

He said the government was making the UK "lean and mean and competitive... but sustainable in the long run" as they spoke about heavy engineering and carbon policies.

They also spoke about Thursday's local elections, welfare, the Communications Data Bill and security issues.
