Mandelson: Shadow cabinet must be clear on spending cuts

Talking about spending cuts on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show, Lord Mandelson spoke of the need for cabinet members to work as a team and be honest with the public about the implications of spending cuts for particular departments.

"Neither party talk enough about how they're going to drive up productivity... we've got to see a modern industrial policy," said the former cabinet minister.

Later in the interview he added that each member of the shadow cabinet must "spell out" their plans and "show they mean it".
