The case for a Tax Dodging Bill

By Press Office
January 29, 2015

Commenting on the launch of the Tax Dodging Bill campaign across the UK, Ekklesia co-director Simon Barrow said:

"While Ekklesia is not a formal member of the newly-launched, non-party Tax Dodging Bill coalition, we support the kind of changes it is advocating.

"As a Christian think-tank concerned with changing the agenda on politics and belief to benefit people and planet, and especially the poorest and most vulnerable or marginalised, we have been commenting, analysing, reporting and advocating on the need for just taxation policies actively since 2008.

"Fairer, more transparent and more effective policies to combat tax avoidance and evasion are part of a range of policies needed to rebalance global, regional, national and local economies in the direction of equality among peoples and environmental justice."
