Labour would reintroduce 50p tax rate

A Labour government would reintroduce the 50p top rate of income tax for those earning over £150,000, shadow chancellor Ed Balls has said.

He said a government analysis which showed it did not raise much was skewed by assumptions made by ministers.

Conservatives said an increase would put "the economic recovery at risk".
