Question to the HM Treasury
To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bates on 28 July (HL997), whether they received a request for ministers to meet the European Parliament's Committee of Inquiry into Money Laundering, Tax Avoidance and Tax Evasion; and if so, what was their response.
Answer (Lord Bates)
The European Parliament’s Committee of Inquiry into Money Laundering, Tax Avoidance and Tax Evasion requested a meeting with ministers during the Committee’s two-day visit to London during February 2017. Ministers were unavailable on the days requested and the Committee met with senior officials from the UK’s cross-agency Panama Papers Taskforce.
