Labour MEPs send warning to ‘tax dodgers’
Linda joined with fellow Labour MEPs to vote for a package of measures that would tackle tax dodging, to stem the 850 billion pounds loss across Europe to public finances due to tax fraud and avoidance. According to HMRC figures, in the UK alone £9 billion is lost every year which could pay for the construction of more than 600 new schools or over 50 new hospitals or pay the annual salaries of over 330,000 police officers. The measures will include the creation of an EU wide black list of tax havens, and a ban on companies who are ‘dodging’ taxes from being awarded public contracts.

“If people want to smoke menthol cigarettes, let them. What will the EU do next? Regulate what time we go to bed?” (Paul Nuttall) Tasteless isn’t the word!
