Ed Miliband has won praise from politicians across the political spectrum for his first House of Commons speech since his party suffered general election defeat.

West Yorkshire MP Yvette Cooper has officially launched her campaign to become the next leader of the Labour Party.
The wife of the ex-shadow Chancellor Ed Balls, who lost his seat earlier this month, Ms Cooper is urging Labour members not to become mired in internal disputes of the past about why labour did so badly at the General Election.
She is one of three female candidates for the job, but the bookies' favourite is the Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham.
People are gathering in Leeds city centre to protest against austerity.

Mr Healey said he had not intended to run but said he was "dismayed at how narrow and shallow the debate has been so far".
He becomes the seventh candidate in the running for the position, meaning at least one or two of those already declared will lack enough MPs' support to make the ballot paper.
Also standing are Don Valley MP, Caroline Flint, as well as Rushanara Ali, Ben Bradshaw, Angela Eagle, Stella Creasy, and Tom Watson.

Labour leadership hopeful Yvette Cooper has said she will put measures to help families at the heart of her campaign to rebuild Labour after its election defeat.
The shadow home secretary said Labour had to "reach outwards" and "rebuild", winning back voters who deserted the party in favour of the Tories, Ukip and the SNP.
Ms Cooper believes she can smash the "glass ceiling" and become Labour's first permanent female leader, vowing to "shake up the system".
In an interview with The Sun on Sunday (£), mother-of-three Ms Cooper, whose husband and former shadow chancellor Ed Balls lost his Westminster seat in the general election, said Labour had to offer hope to families.
We need to put families at the heart of our politics. As a mum, I feel very strongly about that because my family, my kids are the most important thing in my life.
That has to be reflected in what we do. We have got to reach out and rebuild and that means winning back voters.
We've got to show practical things we can do to help families get on, to know their kids can get an apprenticeship, have a good start in life and go to university.
