Labour leader speaks to ITV News Anglia

The Labour leader Ed Miliband has been telling ITV News Anglia why he chose Bedford to launch his party's economic strategy for the next General Election in 2015.

Mr Miliband made his keynote speech at the Bedford Training Group where four-year apprenticeship are offered.

He said Labour would re-introduce the 10p tax rate that Gordon Brown scrapped.

Mr Miliband told ITV News Anglia's Elodie Harper that he came to Bedford because it was there in 1957 that the then Conservative Prime Minister told Britain that we had "never had it so good."
