Ed Miliband: We need to do more on wages

Ed Miliband has unveiled plans to deliver a Living Wage of at least £7.45 per hour for millions of people, if Labour wins the next election.

Whitehall contracts would only go to firms paying the "living wage", while those who paid less could be "named and shamed", said the Labour leader.

Mr Miliband said that the idea was part of his plans to make the country "a fairer and more prosperous place".
