Finance Bill Debate

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

During the Finance Bill debate on Monday I asked the Government why they have deliberately limited the scope of the Bill in order to prevent MPs from tabling amendments which would help tackle tax avoidance.

The Government has deliberately not brought forward an “Amendment of the Law Resolution” which would enable MPs to table amendments to the Finance Bill which could tackle tax avoidance.

It is very disappointing that the Government is refusing to allow Parliament to fully scrutinise its plans.

You can watch my intervention in the debate here.
