Labour 'would welcome' government investment plans

Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna has said his party would "welcome" government plans to invest in infrastructure, but criticised what he called "delays and indecision".

Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, Mr Umunna praised the "dual benefits" of investing in infrastructure, but claimed that major projects were already falling behind.

He also laid out some of Labour's plans to boost the economy, including a national insurance break for micro-businesses taking on new staff and reversing the VAT rise.
