Nick Clegg to attack 'dishonest' Labour over EU vote

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is to use a speech to attack Labour after it sided with Conservative rebels to inflict a defeat on the government over the EU budget.

The rebel MPs passed an amendment calling for a real-terms cut in EU spending between 2014 and 2020.

Labour described the defeat as a humiliation for David Cameron.
