Current Issues

Tax Avoidance

  • Only marginally more felt a Labour government would do better – 26% said they would do a good job, 54% bad job.
  • The majority of the public (55%) do believe it is possible for government to reduce tax avoidance. Three in ten (30%) think it is something that governments are unable to stop in a globalised world.
