Getting the balance right

Posted on

I was quoted in the Independent on Sunday saying of the new corporation tax review:

It has no representatives from the professions, only one from the TUC, none from small business all of whom have interests in corporate tax - how can it come up with the right answers?

Yet again, I wonder why it is that it is TJN that is making these obvious points.

Incidentally, the quote omits the fact that I said civil society also needs to be represented.

The point is obvious: asking big business for solution to corporation tax is so one sided a request that the wrong outcome is almost inevitable. Balance is needed, and that's what we're calling for.
