Opposition Day — Publication of Google Tax Settlement — International Agreement on Country by Country Reporting of Company Accounts — 3 Feb 2016 at 16:53

The majority of MPs voted against publishing full details of the Government's tax settlement with Google and against an international agreement to implement country-by-country reporting of company accounts.

The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • That this House
  • notes the agreement reached between HM Revenue and Customs and Google to pay £130 million in respect of taxes due over the period 2005 to 2015; and
  • calls on the Government to publish the full details so that the British public can judge whether this is, as stated by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, a major success; and
  • further calls for a swift international agreement to implement country-by-country reporting of company accounts.
