Financial Services Bill shelved – John McDonnell responds

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to reports that the Financial Services Bill is being shelved, said:

“More evidence that this government is incapable of getting its business through Parliament. People have just had enough of the Chancellor dragging his feet on tackling tax avoidance. We are demanding action now and no further delays and excuses. The government has been a friend to tax avoiders for too long.”
