MEPs have delivered a resounding message for a Europe wide tax that some are warning will drive bankers and traders out of Europe. However supporters of a Financial Transaction Tax – dubbed a ”Robin Hood tax” by some – say it will discourage speculation and raise much needed revenue. This week The Record Europe asks who is right?
Joining Shirin Wheeler are five MEPs from the economic and monetary affairs committee: Markus Ferber, who leads the Bavarian Centre Right MEPs, Vicky Ford, British Conservative MEP, Gunnar Hökmark, leader of the Swedish Centre Right MEPs, Philippe Lamberts, Belgian Green MEP och Arlene McCarthy, the British Labour MEP who wrote the Parliament’s report on bank bonuses last year.
