Miliband insists abolishing 'non-doms' will raise money

Labour leader Ed Miliband announced a plan today to scrap the so-called 'non-doms' status for some wealthy taxpayers and claimed the policy would raise money for the UK.

Mr Miliband added that the 200-year-old rule was "unfair and unjust".

But the party's proposal appeared to be muddled when it was revealed that shadow chancellor Ed Balls seemed to have ruled it out three months ago.

ITV News' Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen has the latest from Labour's campaign trial.

Mr Miliband was asked if he agreed with the comments Mr Balls made in a video interview in January in which he appeared to saw abolishing the status "would probably end up costing Britain money."

He replied: "The truth is that we have found a way to do this that independent experts say is actually going to raise money.

"You have seen many people out this morning saying it is going to raise at least hundreds of millions of pounds and it is the right thing to do - and it is what Ed Balls said on the radio this morning."
