Finance (No.2) Bill — New Clause 3 — Bank taxation — 8 Nov 2010 at 18:45
Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted not to order a report examining the level of taxation on the banking and financial services industry.
The majority of MPs rejected a proposal to order a report examining the level of taxation on the banking and financial services industry.
Labour MP Chris Leslie introduced a new Clause 2 to be added to the bill saying:
- The Treasury shall publish a report before the 2011 Budget examining the level of taxation on the banking and financial services industry
Mr Leslie explained his intent in proposing the new clause; as he introduced it he said:
- The new clause would shed further light on the facts behind the claim that there are no alternative revenues that could alleviate the burden of service and welfare cuts, which will fall heaviest, as we know, on middle-income families and some of the poorest adults and children in this country.
