Labour is plotting to create a new tax with their mansion tax proposals, Chancellor George Osborne has said during an appearance on ITV's The Agenda.
He told host Tom Bradby: "They say it's a mansion tax before an election and very quickly it becomes a homes tax on many people who are not living in mansions at all."
The Agenda with Tom Bradby will be broadcast on ITV at 10.35pm tonight.
