David Cameron TV debate stand-off questioned in the commons

A political stand-off has deepened today over a series of TV debates in the run up to the General Election.

The leaders of Labour, the Liberal Democrats and UKIP urged broadcasters to continue with the live shows, despite David Cameron refusing to take part unless the Green party is invited.

Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage have written to Mr Cameron saying it would be "unacceptable" for him to refuse to appear.

The issue was the focus of a rowdy Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons today.

He said: “There are two credible sets of debates. You can either have a national debate with all the national parties who appear in this house. Or have a debate with the two people who would become Prime Minister. Those are the credible debates.”

This issue will be discussed in Tomorrow's Headline Interview with the leader of the Green Party, Natalie Bennett. Tune in to see the full interview from 1pm here.
