Labour 'would restrict winter fuel cash for wealthy' - Ed Balls

Winter fuel payments for the UK's richer older people would be cut by Labour if they won the next general election, shadow chancellor Ed Balls has said.

It would affect about 600,000 people over 61 who pay higher and top income tax rates - saving about £100m.

Downing Street dismissed the proposal as a "drop in the ocean".
