A future Labour government would not reverse child benefit cuts made by the coalition, leader Ed Miliband is expected to say tomorrow, according to BBC News.

Labour attacked the decision to cut child benefits from higher taxpayers when it was introduced, but Mr Miliband will reportedly say he supports capping the amount the next government will spend on welfare.

It is reported that he believes Labour could not afford the £2.3bn needed to reverse the cuts.
