LABOUR's General Election pledge to build a high tech economy is being launched this-morning in East London.

Three Government ministers are meeting entrepreneurs, high tech business leaders and residents at 10am at the University of East London's new Royal Docks Business School complex.

The meeting with Ed Miliband, Lord Andrew Adonis, Stephen Timms and MP Joan Ruddock is set to last 90 minutes when they outline Labour's plans for the future, assuming all goes well for them at the polls.

The university's 'showpiece' business school opened on the waterfront of the Royal Albert Dock in 2006 after a �110 million Government cash injection.
