A Labour Party spokesman said:
Under Ed Miliband's leadership we are a united party, speaking for the whole country and the change that Britain needs from this Tory-led Government.
When the country is in recession and the deficit is rising so far this year under Cameron and Osborne it would not be responsible for Labour to make promises we don't know we can keep.
Two goals from the Shadow Chancellor and one from the Shadow Health Secretary were enough to see off a toothless Press Lobby XI.
Ed Miliband said Labour would reverse the coalition's cut in the top rate of tax from 50p to 45p "if there was an election tomorrow".
Ed Miliband will use his party conference to attempt to convince voters he could lead Britain out of recession. He has work to do.
