Labour leader Ed Miliband accused David Cameron today of breaking a string of promises, including to increase NHS spending and keep the Educational Maintenance Allowance (EMA).

As the pair faced each other for the final Prime Minister's question time of the year, Mr Miliband said the Commons Health Select Committee had warned that inflation could mean the Government failing to make real-terms increases in NHS funding.

But Mr Cameron told him: "We are not breaking that promise. We want to see NHS spending increase by more than inflation every year."

In a final jibe at Mr Miliband, he compared the Labour leader to his predecessor Gordon Brown, claiming he was "dithering and has no answers on the economy".
