'Government needs to come clean on pensions' says Miliband

In an interview for ITV News, Labour leader Ed Miliband said that the Government needs to come clean on pensions. He also said that Lord Heseltine's criticism of the Government's stance in Europe is a "devastating" blow for David Cameron.

He said: "The most important thing the Government needs to do is come clean about what the implications of their pension proposals are.

"I think it is devastating for the Prime minister that you have now got Lord Heseltine saying that he is essentially operating in the party interest and not the national interest, and warning about the dangers of the approach."
