Conservative Party Conference: David Cameron interview

Conservative Party Conference: David Cameron interview; INT 2 SHOT reporter and Cameron Q: is eliminating borrowing entirely unnecessary? David Cameron MP (Prime Minister) interview SOT - think that is wrong / when the crash hit Britain hard and we had deep recession, our borrowing shot up and has shot up to almost unsustainable levels / should fix the roof when the sun is shining and use good years to pay down your levels of debt, so if it happens again you can take the shock / if we don't do it in the way I've suggested... the next time this happens it could tip Britain over the edge and we've seen with Greece, Portugal, other countries, if you go over that precipice and have massive swingeing cuts to public services, people's livelihoods / that's terrible / paying down your debts does matter Q: Chancellor gave unpalatable message David Cameron SOT - his message was right / even if you don't agree with my 'over the precipice' argument in future, we are gloing to be spending approx 70 billion pounds a year on serving the interest on our debt / I want that money to go into schools, hospitals / can only do that if you start to get debt levels down Q: a lot of families can't take the hit? David Cameron SOT - freeze in working benefits will mean between 2007 and 2017 benefits would have been going up at roughly the same rate as earnings / I think that is fair / don't think it's fair that benefits go up faster than the earnings of people who are paying the taxes to pay the benefits Q: benefit people have virtually no income David Cameron SOT - best answer is to take them out of taxation Cameron and reporter
