Clegg to renew Lib Dems' mansion tax pledge

Nick Clegg will today claim the Government has "asked for a bit more from those who can afford it" and will pledge to continue to fight for the introduction of a mansion tax.

We've increased capital gains tax; introduced a higher rate of stamp duty and a £12.5 billion banking levy; we've closed loopholes and capped tax relief to stop the very rich from gaming the system. And the Liberal Democrats will continue to argue for our mansion tax.

– Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg
