Osborne: Intervention by business leaders 'unprecedented'

George Osborne has claimed that a letter of support written by business leaders is an "unprecedented intervention" into the election campaign.

Over 100 business chiefs wrote to the Telegraph to express their support at the Coalition's reduction of corporation tax.

The Chancellor said it showed their economic plan was "working and creating jobs".

He stated that a vote for Labour means the "recovery will be put at risk".
