Miliband: 'Main issue is who's benefiting from your budget'

Asked why he had not asked the cabinet to publish their tax returns, Ed Miliband explained:

What I think is that the main issue is who's benefiting from your budget and who isn't and what are your priorities. My argument with the budget is that it helps people at the top and raises taxes on millions of other people... In parliament you declare an interest. If you make a change in legislation which particularly effects you, you say 'well I declare an interest'.
