Financial Transaction Tax

EDM number 1579 in 2010-12, proposed by Caroline Lucas on 10/03/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Financial services and Taxation.

That this House welcomes the vote by the European Parliament in favour of two resolutions on 8 March 2011 proposing the introduction of a Robin Hood tax on financial transactions, clamping down on tax havens and introducing measures aimed at tackling tax evasion; and calls on the Government to introduce urgently legislation that reflects this policy to ensure that the financial sector pays its fair share towards reducing the national deficit.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
