PM Must 'Clarify' Peer's Tax Status Claims

Post by feelthelove on Tue Sep 22, 2015 5:29 am

The Labour party has said David Cameron's statements on Lord Ashcroft's tax status raise a "serious question mark".

The Opposition called on the Prime Minister to clarify when he found out about the peer's non-dom tax status.

Lord Ashcroft says in a new book that Mr Cameron knew in 2009 that he had not given up his tax privileges, while the Prime Minister has said he did not know until 2010.

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour's shadow minister without portfolio, said in a statement: "Amidst the furore around Lord Ashcroft's new book there lies a serious question mark over the consistency of the Prime Minister's statements about the peer's tax status."

He added: "The Prime Minister should immediately clarify exactly when he first knew of Lord Ashcroft's non-domiciled status."
