The chairman of the Conservative Party Grant Shapps said Labour's policy on free schools remains unchanged and still features a "load of bureaucracy attached".
The new shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt earlier signalled that the Labour party had dropped its opposition to the Conservatives' free schools policy.
Speaking to BBC News, Mr Shapps said: "This is the same old Labour policy. They have been saying this for months.
"Free schools will only be allowed in specific circumstances in specific areas with a whole load of bureaucracy attached."
