Celebrated Labour MP, Dame Margaret Hodge, is Chair of the UK’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on Responsible Tax which is trying to compel the Crown Dependencies to follow the agreement by Overseas Territories to introduce public share ownership records by December 2020; a move which all three territories are resisting. British MPs are yet to vote on this amendment to the Financial Services Bill after the government cancelled the previously planned debate and votes. The APPG Responsible Tax argues that greater transparency over company ownership is an important tool in tackling money laundering, tax avoidance and tax evasion. The Crown Dependencies, however, claim that the amendment is unnecessary due to the already robust approach to the retention and sharing of beneficial ownership information. They also assert that the Westminster Parliament is challenging their sovereignty and cannot legislate for them on domestic matters without their consent. In this Economic Report Q & A with Dame Margaret Hodge, she reveals that the Group has no intention of withdrawing their amendment and rebuts the claims made by the CDS.
