Labour leader Ed Miliband went straight on to the offensive after George Osborne's Budget speech, asking for Cabinet members to admit if they were to personally benefit from cutting the 50p tax rate.


Quoting back one of the Government's favourite mantras to promote transparency, he urged them: "Sunlight is the best disinfectant. Just nod if you're going to benefit from it, or shake your head if you're not. Come on, we've got plenty of time."
