Speaking in Bury, Greater Manchester, Mr Miliband said he welcomed the opportunity offered by the debate “to talk directly to the British people and make a simple case”. He added: “It’s a case for change, because I believe it is only when working people succeed that Britain succeeds.”
The Labour leader also said that as a son of immigrants he is also proud to lead a party that has changed its stance on immigration. So far, during the Q&A, he has taken questions on the NHS and balancing the nations books.
He was also quizzed on Labour’s support for Hs2 and said his party were “absolutely” committed to the project.
George Osborne, the Chancellor, is expected to give a speech later today questioning Ed Balls’ commitment to the project.
