Shadow William Hague has insisted his party had no plans to raise VAT and said Tory economic plans were more detailed than any opposition party's had been in any previous election.
"We are not asking to raise VAT. We have set out our plans and they don't involve raising VAT. We have said we have to get the debt and the deficit under control and we will have to do what's necessary to do that, but none of our plans involve raising VAT."
