Mr Cameron was asked about East Anglia's rail services by Ipswich MP Ben Gummer.

The Prime Minister responded by thanking the MP and his colleagues for the work they had done to press for better rail services between London and Norwich.

'We have a very clear view which is that we want to achieve Ipswich in 60 minutes and Norwich in 90 minutes and that is what these reforms are all about,' he said.

'On this day, because he makes quite a lot of noise opposite, it is worth saying happy birthday to the shadow chancellor and part of the aim of this when he has plenty of time after the election, he will get to see Norwich City in just 90 minutes.
