Ed Miliband: Child benefit plans 'a shambles'

Labour leader Ed Miliband has called the government's policy of welfare reform a ''complete shambles'', as the Treasury has confirmed that higher rate tax payers will face fines if they refuse to disclose if they, or their partners, receive child benefit.
