Labour defends plans to scrap 'non-dom' tax status

Labour has defended its plans to end the non-domicile rule that allows some wealthy UK residents to limit the tax paid on earnings outside the country.

Ed Miliband said the non-dom rules were "indefensible" and axing them would raise "hundreds of millions" in tax.

But shadow chancellor Ed Balls was forced to deny contradicting himself after saying in January that scrapping the rule "would cost Britain money".
