Ministers set to wrangle over cuts to the last minute
Nigel Morris and Michael Savage
"The man responsible for overseeing huge spending cuts admitted last night that there was still a "long way to go" to reach a deal over where they would be made.
"Danny Alexander, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, suggested that talks on cutting £83bn from spending would go to the wire. They are due to be announced on 20 October.
"Mr Alexander told the Independent fringe meeting: "We're making good progress, but there is a lot longer to go. These are incredibly difficult decisions. They weigh heavily on our shoulders.""
