Labour will tackle "immoral" Conservative policies if it wins the election, the shadow Welsh Secretary has told party delegates in Swansea.

Owen Smith said it would scrap the so-called bedroom tax and tighten tax laws "in line with people's values".

Labour leader Ed Miliband had given the party its "mojo" back and was on the side of working people, he added.

Mr Smith also claimed Labour was "the party of devolution" and rejected others' claims to speak for Wales.

He denounced the Conservatives as "the real enemy of the people", Plaid Cymru as "out of touch", UKIP as a "rag-bag" and that he "can't be bothered" to say anything about the Liberal Democrats.

Mr Smith also hailed the Welsh Labour government's record on jobs as being better than that of the Tory-led coalition at Westminster.
