Labour conference

 


Labour’s online ‘alternative to a conference’ saw debates on taxing wealth, business taxes and job protection programmes, but little in the way of policy development, as the new leadership plays it safe and focuses its efforts on holding the government to account.

Shadow Tax Minister Anneliese Dodds told our Labour Conference fringe debate that unilateral approaches are less effective than a joint approach across nations when it comes to taxing companies, but struck a hopeful note, saying there is ‘a lot of support for dealing with loopholes in the international tax system’.
