Tax exiles to be blocked from Lords

Tax exiles will have to come back to the UK to be considered for a peerage

Tax exiles who want to be considered for a peerage will have to return to the
UK.

The House of Lords Appointments Commission is tightening rules that will
change its vetting procedure. According to The Times the change has
been led by a Scotland Yard inquiry into cash for peerages.

The rule change would have disqualified two Labour businessmen whose blocked
peerage nominations are at the centre of a police probe. Property developer Sir
David Garrard moved to Geneva to become a tax exile and Priory Clinic founder Dr
Chai Patel has £45m in an off-shore trust in Jersey.
