Cameron: 'We have a responsibility to act on debt'

Prime Minister David Cameron has urged voters in the forthcoming general election not to pass on a "legacy of debt" to their children.

In a speech launching the first of six themes for the Conservative manifesto, he set out plans to end the £90bn deficit with spending cuts, not tax rises, while raising NHS spending.

"We have a responsibility to act. We can get Britain back to living within our means in a way that is fair, sensible and secure" he added.
