Shadow chancellor Ed Balls has said that the Tories should back Labour's "compulsory jobs guarantee for young people".
In responding to George Osborne’s speech on the economy, he added: "George Osborne is desperate to stop talking about the cost-of-living crisis on his watch."
"The Tories should back our compulsory jobs guarantee for young people and the long-term unemployed.
"And in tough times it cannot be a priority to continue paying the winter fuel allowance to the richest five per cent of pensioners."
