Tackling Tax Avoidance

The Prime Minister and the Chancellor have failed to deliver on tackling tax avoidance in the last five years. They have failed to close loopholes, whilst the amount of uncollected tax has risen under this Government.

Only last week in Parliament the Government voted against plans to crack down harder on tax avoidance. I would like to see the introduction of a Finance Bill that will close loopholes that cost the exchequer billions of pounds a year, increase transparency and toughen up penalties.
The Prime Minister’s economic plan doesn’t work for most people because it always prioritises helping a few at the top.
