At Prime Minister's Questions yesterday, Phil Wilson MP asked the Prime Minister whether he had discussed allegations of tax avoidance with the former HSBC boss and trade minister Stephen Green. The Prime Minister failed to answer, despite being asked a further three times by other Labour MPs.

His question came after Labour set out the measures it will take to tackle tax avoidance in the first months of a Labour Government.

With campaigners and NGOs backing calls for a “Tax Dodging Bill”, Labour’s first Finance Bill will act to tackle tax avoidance. Labour set out the measures in an Opposition Day Debate yesterday.

Labour’s motion noted that just one out of 1,100 people who have avoided or evaded tax have been prosecuted following the revelations of malpractice at HSBC bank, which were first given to the government in May 2010.

It also called upon Lord Green and the Prime Minister to make a full statement about his role at HSBC and his appointment as a Minister in 2011.
