Commenting on today’s agreement amongst EU governments on far-reaching measures to tackle corporate tax avoidance, Liberal Democrat MEP Catherine Bearder said:
“This is great news! Billions of pounds are lost to tax avoidance each year, money that should be spent on our public services.
“By working together in Europe we can tackle cross-border problems like tax dodging and make sure multinational companies pay their fair share.
“Leaving would be a gift to tax dodgers that would undermine the international fight against tax avoidance.
