Matthew Hancock: Solvency is vital

Confidence in Britain's solvency is vital for the economic recovery, Matthew Hancock has warned. Writing exclusively for PoliticsHome, the Conservative MP and former chief of staff to George Osborne said that "more short term action is needed" to improve infrastructure in the UK, and that economic confidence has been "hit hard" by the "daily deluge" of bad news from the eurozone. He also hit out at Labour's economic plan, warning that "the idea that the answer to a debt crisis is more debt has been dramatically disproven by events on the Continent".


Osborne backs board quotas

George Osborne will endorse calls for 30% of company boards to be made up of women, the Mail on Sunday has reported. The proposal was put forward by Conservative MPs Matthew Hancock and Nadhim Zahawi in their book Masters of Nothing.


Ed Miliband: I would tax more

Ed Miliband has told Channel 4 news he would tax more to cut the deficit then Alistair Darling had previously announced. Tory MP Matthew Hancock today released an analysis of the new Labour leader's tax plans saying he will land the UK with a £35 billion tax "bombshell".


Miliband makes PMQs debut

Ed Miliband gave a strong performance at PMQs earlier today, where he questioned David Cameron at length about child benefit reforms. Mr Cameron asked Mr Miliband for an alternative to the cuts, to which he said: "I may be new to the game, but I think I ask the questions and he answers them.
