Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Opposition, responding to the ongoing crisis in Libya, said:
"The Government have clearly been too slow over the last few days.
"They will need to learn lessons about the speed of response because it is obvious other countries did respond more quickly.
"They have taken their eye off the ball.
"British citizens in Libya who are looking to get home, and their families, will want to know that everything is being done to get them home as quickly as possible.
"I don't think the Conservative-led Government was sufficiently focused on this."
