Shadow chancellor Ed Balls referred to the Tory manifesto as he attacked the Chancellor's pre-election pledge to maintain the UK's credit rating.
Reading a quote which said "the British people will have transparent benchmarks against which they could judge the economic success or failure of the next government", Mr Balls went on:
"'Number one, we will safeguard Britain's credit rating' the first economic test he set himself, now failed by this downgraded Chancellor".
