Ed Miliband effectively ruled out a referendum on Britain's membership of the EU today, as he set out his party's stance on the issue.
Confused by Labour' pledge to have a referendum on Britain's membership of the EU? You are not alone.
There are fears of gas shortages in Ukraine after Russia announced it would raise its prices. But will that affect the rest of Europe?
Whenthe new immigration minister James Brokenshire attacked what he called the "wealthy, metropolitan elite" for benefiting from cheap foreign labour, it's unlikely he meant to point the finger at the Prime Minister.
But his words have now come back to haunt the government, after it emerged the Camerons had hired a Nepalese woman as a nanny who later gained British citizenship.
She had put Samantha Cameron down as her employer but there was no special pleading on her behalf.
Do these domestic arrangements really matter politically? Well, it shows what a sensitive subject immigration continues to be - and why getting the tone right can be tricky.
Downing Street has insisted David Cameron followed all the "proper processes" after it emerged his family's Nepalese nanny has been granted British citizenship.
Questions were raised about Mr Cameron's use of foreign domestic help after a minister deplored the effects of the "metropolitan elite" using cheap migrant workers.
Home Office minister James Brokenshire said yesterday the wealthy had been the main winners from Britain's openness to labour from abroad, because they had to pay less for tradesmen and services.
The Conservatives' new immigration minister James Brokenshire had earlier said that Mr Cable was "incorrect" over the seriousness of the figures and also stated that wealthy Britons are "benefiting from immigration"
ITV News political correspondent Carl Dinnen reports:
The Liberal Democrat Business Secretary Vince Cable has told ITV News that the issues over immigration are of "genuine concern to lots of people" and that he won't get into a "party political barney" with opponents or Coalition partners.
The Conservatives' new immigration minister James Brokenshire had earlier said that Mr Cable was "incorrect" over the seriousness of the figures and also stated that wealthy Britons are "benefiting from immigration".
David Cameron has said the European Union will consider far reaching steps against Russia if it continues to take steps to "destabilise" the situation in Ukraine.
He said asset freezes and travel bans on Russian officials could happen "relatively quickly" unless progress in talks are made, and revealed that he EU had agreed to suspend negotiations on easing visa rules for Russians in response to President Vladimir Putin's intervention in Ukraine.
Mr Cameron was speaking after a meeting of European Union heads of state in Brussels.
Immigration Minister James Brokenshire's speech today on border control was "feeble and pathetic", according to the head of an influential business group.
The Director General of the Institute of Directors, Simon Walker, said Brokenshire's speech seemed to be "more about political positioning and less about what is good for the country".
The Conservative party's new immigration minister James Brokenshire is expected to accuse the middle classes of befitting from the arrival of foreign workers into the UK in a speech today.
"For too long, the benefits of immigration went to employers who wanted an easy supply of cheap labour, or to the wealthy metropolitan elite who wanted cheap tradesmen and services – but not to the ordinary, hard-working people of this country," Mr Brokenshire is set to say.
"We are changing that and building a system that benefits all."

The EU has now frozen the assets of 18 people suspected of "misappropriating" Ukrainian state funds - including ousted president Viktor Yanukovich.
Chancellor George Osborne announced the asset freeze would take place on Twitter:
We are freezing assets across the EU on 18 Ukrainians suspected of misappropriating Ukrainian state funds
Last week, migration experts and rival politicians accused the Government of losing its grip on immigration policy as official figures revealed the net flow of migrants into the UK surged year-on-year by more than a third to 212,000 in the 12 months to September 2013.
In his inaugural speech as Immigration Minister, Conservative James Brokenshire is expected to say, "In the past year net migration from the EU has doubled and this figure is, frankly, just too high.
"Some have tried to claim that this rapid increase is somehow 'good' for the country. Well, just like the Home Secretary, I disagree."
This will be in contrast to Vince Cable's Mansion House speech this evening where he is due to say the UK economy will be held back if the country is seen as "closed for business".
David Cameron and his European Union counterparts will hold talks in Brussels today aimed at sending a message to Moscow that Russia's intervention in Ukraine will have "significant consequences".
The hastily-arranged summit comes as Russian President Vladimir Putin refused to back down in the face of Western pressure to return troops to their bases and recognise the new government in Kiev.
In talks between Barack Obama and the Prime Minister last night the two leaders agreed the US and should be "united in condemnation" of Russia's actions.
