It’s great to see Cllr Apak demanding a crackdown on tax avoidance<, as reported in the Camden New Journal.
That’s one of the key Green Party demands and Caroline Lucas MP tabled a Private Member’s Bill in this respect earlier in the year – a shame that Labour did not do something similar in its 13 years in power.
We look forward to Cllr Apak’s support, when future contracts with major tax avoiders (such as Vodafone) come up, in using the Council’s commercial power to tackle this ill. (As Camden Green Party has previously called for<.)
It's time for all parties to wake up to the imbalance of power in our current system which means that big corporates get away with paying very little taxation worldwide.
