The super-rich should be hit with a 50% inheritance tax to allow cuts for the middle classes, a think tank has said.
The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) said the chancellor could raise £147m a year and cut death duty for up to 90% of people.
It said estates of more than £808,000 could be taxed under a banded system.
The left of centre organisation said Gordon Brown should use the extra cash to help Britain's poorest youngsters through the Child Trust Fund.
You load sixteen tons, and what do you get?
