Danny Alexander: Top earners aren't priority for tax cuts

Danny Alexander, chief secretary to the Treasury, defends the 50p rate on BBC1's The Andrew Marr Show:

"We set out in the coalition agreement, and it's something that we as Liberal Democrats pushed very hard for, that the government's first priority in tax reductions would be tax cuts for people on low and middle incomes.

"Those very families who are working hard to try and make ends meet. Anyone who thinks we're going to shift our priority to reducing the tax burden for the wealthiest has got another thing coming."
