Opposition Day — Publication of Google Tax Settlement — International Agreement on Country by Country Reporting of Company Accounts — 3 Feb 2016 at 16:53
George Osborne MP, Tatton did not vote.
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.
