28 September 2013 Last updated at 18:12 BST

Plans for some married couples to get tax breaks worth up to £200 a year have been announced by David Cameron.

The prime minister said four million couples would benefit from a £1,000 transferable tax allowance from 2015.

The tax break would apply if couples were both basic rate tax payers and would also include 15,000 couples in civil partnerships, from April 2015.
