DAVID CAMERON Will Today [...]; David Cameron and Labour Leader Ed Miliband Will Today Lay out Their Contrasting Visions of Britain's Future Following the Spending Cuts as They Speak to the Confederation of British Industry's Annual Conference


DAVID CAMERON will today promise to create a "new economic dynamism" in Britain to boost growth and replace the jobs lost as a result of the Government's spending cuts.

The Prime Minister will announce the creation of a pounds 200m network of technology innovation centres, linking university researchers with business.

"To build that new dynamism in our economy we've got to back the big businesses of tomorrow, not just the big businesses of today. "That means opening up access to finance, creating an attractive environment for venture capital funding, getting banks lending to small businesses again."

Mr Cameron will say that the new technology and innovation centres - based on a model by James Dyson - will help convert innovation into commercial success by bringing universities and business together.

He will also highlight the need to boost competitiveness, with the merger of the Office of Fair Trading and the Competition Commission in and a "more streamlined" competition regime.

"Some industries are too uncompetitive.

We're going to challenge the status quo," he is expected to say.

LABOUR leader Ed Miliband will issue a warning that Britain risks "sleepwalking" into a repeat of the mistakes which led to the recession, unless there are profound changes to the way the economy is managed. …
