Higher taxes for the very wealthy will be a central plank of the Liberal Democrats' general election manifesto in 2015, Danny Alexander has said.
The Chief Secretary to the Treasury said proposals for a mansion tax, restrictions on pension tax relief and increases in capital gains tax would ensure the wealthy "contribute the most".
In a speech to the Liberal Democrat conference in Glasgow, he said: "As we look to the next parliament, the tax policy we agreed yesterday puts us in a strong position to tackle the remaining deficit fairly.
"By committing to raise taxes on the very wealthy through the mansion tax, through restricting pension tax relief, through increasing capital gains tax rates further, the Liberal Democrats will ensure that those who have the most will continue to contribute the most.
"These taxes on the very wealthy will be one of our central promises for the next parliament. Making sure they can't avoid their taxes is a job we are getting on with right now."
