Labour has been accused of playing "cynical party games" ahead of a House of Commons debate and vote on plans for a ‘mansion tax'.
Vince Cable said the motion put forward by Labour was originally a Liberal Democrat policy and that the party was attempting to drive a wedge between the Lib Dems and the Conservatives ahead of next week's Budget.
In February, Labour leader Ed Miliband announced that Labour would re-introduce a 10p starting rate of income tax paid for through a levy on properties worth more than £2m.
However, the Institute for Fiscal Studies said the policy had "no plausible economic justification".
The Conservatives have opposed the idea from the start, saying it wouldn't be right to "come after [people] every year with a massive great tax", though Prime Minister David Cameron said it was right that rich people make a greater contribution.
Cable said his party would show its continued support for a policy it "created" while not siding with Labour.
