Controversial plans to cap tax relief on charitable donations have been scrapped by Chancellor George Osborne, the Treasury has announced.


The cap - limiting relief at £50,000 or 25% of income - was proposed in Mr Osborne's March 21 Budget but sparked massive protest from charities, who warned they could lose a significant proportion of their income.
