Jim Murphy defends plan to fund Scots nurses from 'mansion tax'

Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy has rejected claims he is trying to "buy" Scottish votes with money "expropriated" from London.

Mr Murphy has pledged that a UK-wide "mansion tax" would allow a future Labour government to create 1,000 new nursing posts in Scotland.

He said most of the money raised would come from London and the south east.
