David Cameron has insisted that the decision to freeze fuel duty was not a Government U-turn as Labour branded the move "another case of panic at the pumps".


Ed Miliband claimed stopping the 3p increase planned for August was proof that "plan A was not working". But the Prime Minister insisted the coalition was "defusing Labour's tax bombshell".
