Labour leader Ed Miliband will map out his 10-year "national mission" to transform Britain in his speech at the party's conference in Manchester later today.

So what exactly is he expected to promise...?

1. End an NHS funding crisis

Save the NHS amid forecasts of a £30bn funding gap by 2020 - by using some of the £2bn proceeds from the party's high-value property tax.

2. Raise the number of first-time home buyers

A Labour government will hope to double the number of first-time buyers to 400,000 a year.

3. More apprenticeships

Ensure that as many school-leavers take up apprenticeships as go to university by raising the number of places available from 100,000 to 400,000.

4. Halve the number of people on low-pay

There are currently five million people on low pay.

5. Tackle the cost-of-living crisis

By ensuring the five million self-employed people are not "locked out" of pensions and mortgages.

6. Green industry improvements

Double the number of jobs in "green industries" to two million.

7. Better health care service

Mr Miliband will pledge to build a "world-class 21st century health and care service".
