The pre-election skirmishing between the main parties will resume as Labour turns its fire on the Tories' spending plans.

Ministers seized on David Cameron's announcement at the weekend that there would be no "swingeing cuts" during the first year of a Conservative government to claim the party's plans were in "confusion".

The Tories previously stated they would move further and faster than Labour to tackle Britain's £178 billion budget deficit in an effort to reassure the international markets and stabilise the economy.
