Reaction from the Coalition Government to the new Labour Leader

Simon Hughes, the Lib Dem deputy leader, has put out a statement welcoming Ed Miliband's election.

"It is good to hear that he intends to practise a new politics of working across party boundaries in the national interest. The country has a tough time ahead and it will be vital that he wakes up to the challenge that Britain faces. As leader he must recognise that his party can no longer remain head-in-the sand deficit deniers"
