PMQs: Miliband attacks Cameron over GDP and UK economy

Ed Miliband told David Cameron that people were "fed up with his excuses" as they clashed over the economy, after figures showed UK economic activity shrank by 0.2% in the last three months of 2011.

The Labour leader accused the government of arrogance and "smug complacency". He used a government sound bite to claim: "We are not all in it together."

The prime minister listed government measures to boost the economy, including enterprise zones, cutting corporation tax and investing in apprenticeships.

He said Conservatives and Liberal Democrats were "taking responsibility" for clearing up the mess left by the last Labour government.
