Labour 'committed to triple-lock' on pensions

Labour is "absolutely committed" to the triple-lock on pensions throughout the next parliament, Ed Miliband has said.

He was responding to David Cameron's promise to increase the state pension by whichever measure is highest - inflation, average earnings, or 2.5%.

But Mr Miliband drew attention to what he said was Mr Cameron's desire for "a further tax cut in the top rate of tax... when ordinary families are facing a cost of living crisis."
