Irish Labour leader claims Brown opposes EU tax

Gilmore, Irish Labour Party leader, claims Brown has stressed his opposition to any EU tax harmonisation

British prime minister Gordon Brown has stressed his opposition to any change
towards EU tax harmonisation, Labour Party leader Eamon Gilmore said after talks
at Downing Street this week.

Gilmore said the issue was raised during the talks aimed at improving
relations between the Irish and British Labour parties.

He said Brown shared the Irish Labour Party’s opposition to a common
corporate tax base across Europe even though no such proposal iwas included in
the Lisbon Treaty, Irish RTE News reported.

The two party leaders also discussed the forthcoming investment conference in
Belfast next month and expressed their hopes for its success.
