Andrew Mitchell MP calls for greater tax haven transparency

16th November 2017

Andrew Mitchell MP has urged the Government to push for greater tax haven transparency to help tackle corrupt practices.

He said: "We have an obligation not least to our own taxpayers to champion transparency and openness and to have zero tolerance towards corruption.

"The time has come, and this is the third debate that I have taken part in, to insist on the same levels of openness and transparency for the overseas territories as we have in this country.

"Registers must be open to the media, to journalists, to NGOs and to those people who can join up the dots."
