PMQs: Clarke and Cameron on Labour economic plans

Former Tory chancellor Ken Clarke has teased Labour about sticking to his previous spending plans,

He said the government's post-election plans would reduce the share of public spending to Labour levels in the late-1990s.

David Cameron claimed Labour was basing its "economic policies on a throwaway remark on the BBC" and the shadow chancellor's ideas had "collapsed within five minutes".
