The Labour Party conference has just finished and here is Ed Balls’ speech.  He laid out the achievements of the Labour Government since it came to power in 1997.  These include:

  • Sure Start Centres
  • Free Nursery Care for 3 and 4 year olds
  • 4000 new or refurbished schools
  • 42, 000 new teachers
  • 183, 000 teaching assistants

Now in the face of national debt, cuts are suggested but here Balls appears to committed to no cuts in child benefit or Sure Start.
