Brown urges action on tax havens

Prime minister has stressed urgency in global co-operation on tax havens

Gordon Brown has again urged international action on the crackdown of tax
havens ahead of the G20 summit in April.

The UK prime minister said action would be part of a ‘grand bargain’ on the
global economy, according to

Brown is anticipating international regulatory measures can be agreed upon
among G20 leaders in two months time.

‘We want the whole of the world to take action…that will mean action
against regulatory and tax havens in parts of the world which have escaped the
regulatory attention they need,’ he said.
