Tories line up UK taxpayers-only parliament

David Cameron outlines MPs and peers as UK taxpayer-only zones

Both peers and MPs will have to be UK taxpayers if they wish to hang onto the
roles, under new plans by opposition leader David Cameron.

After controversy has dogged the tax status of
Tory
donor Lord Ashcroft, who has consistently reused to confirm his tax status, and
Tory candidate Zac Goldsmith’s non-dom status, Cameron would look to push
through laws under his government.

Cameron told
Sky
News
that the law would be passed “straight away” if the Tories
came into power, stating that being the parliament meant you needed to be a full
UK taxpayer.

Labour said it had already announced pans to make peers UK taxpayers.
