After David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg all made a public vow on this, Mr Brown added: "The eyes of the world have been upon us and now I think the eyes of the world are upon the leaders of the major parties of the United Kingdom.
"These are men who had been promise makers, and they will not be promise breakers, and I will ensure that that these promises that have been made are upheld."
