The Government has just published proposals for a gifts tax and outlined its thoughts on a future wealth tax. Both measures are aimed at greater redistribution of wealth in Britain. But how much inequality is there? How accurate is the widely quoted statistic that ten per cent of the population owns 70 per cent of all personal wealth? Do we take sufficient account of pensions or life policies in calculating what we're worth?
Tonight's programme examines what constitutes wealth and how it is shared out, and discusses the likely effect of new taxes on those who either create or inherit wealth. Presented by Tony Eccles Producer MICHAEL GREEN
