Government on side of tax avoiders and evaders – Anneliese Dodds
Anneliese Dodds MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury Minister, responding to the Queen’s Speech, said:
“With nothing in this Queen’s Speech on ending tax avoidance or the Registration of Overseas Entities Bill, it’s clear who this government represents.
“You won’t hear this government standing up for the fair payment of tax – because it’s on the side of the tax avoiders and evaders.
“A Labour government will clamp down on enablers of tax avoidance and evasion, scrap non-dom status, and lay out the most ambitious tax transparency and enforcement programme this country has ever seen.”
