Angela Eagles says Labour would not have signed a tax deal with Switzerland

Posted on

I was on a panel at a fringe meeting with Angela Eagle , Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury. When asked about the reecent UK - Swiss tax deal she made it clear that there was no way Labour would have done this deal: it had been committed to EU solutions to tax evasion.

The point seemed clear: this is definitely a party political deal and not a pragmatic HMRC development.

Good news.
