Clegg calls for 'workers' bonus'

Nick Clegg has called for the income tax personal allowance to be raised to £10,500 in what he calls a "workers' bonus".

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, the Deputy Prime Minister stated his belief that half a million people could be lifted out of paying income tax altogether.

However, when asked by Andrew Marr, Nick Clegg said he still needs to get Conservative agreement for the proposals.
