The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented and it’s meant we all had to pull together to pull through.
But I’m too aware that some large corporations are not pulling their weight. That is why I am backing the Co-operative Party's campaign for Fair Tax Bailouts. This would mean that every company attempting to claim a Government bailout would have to prove that they have paid their fair share of taxes. These companies would have to:
- Publish a fair tax policy: no tax avoidance, no tax havens, no profit-shifting
- Publish their real profits, losses, and taxes paid on a country-by-country basis
- Publish their real owners and beneficiaries
I have long been an advocate for challenging large corporations who do not contribute their fair amount to the public purse. I will continue to press the Government to ensure that every business pays it way.
