Labour conference: Ed Balls calls for stamp duty break
Shadow chancellor Ed Balls is to call for 100,000 new affordable homes and a two-year stamp duty holiday for first-time buyers to kick-start the economy.
Mr Balls will use his keynote speech to Labour's conference in Manchester to call for "urgent" action on growth.
It comes amid a row between Labour's leadership and the unions over backing for a public sector pay freeze.
Mr Miliband said Labour could not be dominated by special interests such as the trade unions.
Gary O'Donoghue reports from Manchester.
