Cable: tax avoidance a priority

Business secretary still focused on tackling tax avoidance

Vince Cable

Vince Cable, the former Lib Dem shadow chancellor and business secretary, has
said that beating tax avoidance will be one of his top priorities in his new
role.

Speaking to the Daily telegraph Cable said that tacking tax avoidance is ”
essential” and that he would be looking at it “closely”.

In their pre coalition manifesto the Lib Dems claimed they could save up to
£4.6bn by tackling avoidance in the first year of coming to office.

Cable has in the past stated his preference for companies to report their tax
liabilities country by country.
