To: Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer
We welcome the steps you have taken to protect millions of jobs at this time.
To rebuild our economy, we urge you to look to those most able to pay to make the greatest contribution, particularly through a Robin Hood Tax on financial transactions.*
Extending the current UK tax on share transactions to include bonds and derivatives would generate an extra £4.7 billion a year; £23.5 billion over the course of a parliament, to help fund our NHS and pay towards the economic recovery.
Now is the time to introduce the Robin Hood Tax.
