Introduction of Robin Hood Tax

Introduction of Robin Hood Tax by Green Party MLA Brian WilsonBrian has called on the Chancellor of the Exchequer to introduce a Robin Hood Tax across the UK.

Brian Wilson Green Party Assembly Member for North Down said: “The Robin Hood Tax is a tiny tax on bankers that would raise billions which could be targeted at poverty and climate change issues, here and abroad. By taking an average of 0.05% from speculative banking transactions, hundreds of billions of pounds would be raised every year.”

A great many charities, trade unions and environmental groups have already voiced their support for a Robin Hood Taxation, including Action Aid, Association of Teachers and Lecturers, Barnardo’s, BECTU, Christian Aid, Friends of the Earth, National Union of Teachers, Oxfam GB, RSPB, Trades Union Congress & Unison.
