Ed Miliband has announced plans to support British workers and help families cope with rising cost of living.

The Labour party leader said large firms will have to train up a British apprentice for every overseas worker they bring to the UK while he would ensure apprenticeships in Britain are “gold standard”.

He believes the policy could result in the creation of 125,000 new apprentices over five years because the long-term solution for the UK economy is to develop a highly skilled homegrown workforce.
