Financial misconduct report – John McDonnell responds

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to the Transparency International report on financial misconduct, said:

“This government has created the conditions for financial misconduct to flourish.

“We’ve set out a practical plan to tackle those who enable tax avoidance and evasion, including strengthening laws, setting up an Offshore Company Property Levy to curb corrupt property purchases and holding a public inquiry into the finance sector.”

“The next Labour government will stop at nothing to take on the professionals who profit from aiding and abetting corruption.”
