Labour’s attack on non-dom Ashcroft hits snag

Labour efforts to use Lord Ashcroft’s revelation of his non-dom status as

Labour seized upon the fact the Tory vice chairman does not pay UK tax on a
reported £1bn of assets he holds offshore, after the peer confirmed his non-dom
status this week.

However, The Cabinet Office revealed that it endorsed a deal with the
Conservatives in 2000 before Lord Ashcroft received his peerage, approving his
eligibility as “a long-term resident”, according to
Daily Mail
