My hon. Friend makes a strong and compelling case for the amendment and the new clause. Is this not absolutely in line with the principles outlined in the G8 agreement which said:

“We agree to work together to address base erosion and profit shifting, and to ensure that international and our own tax rules do not allow or encourage any multinational enterprises to reduce overall taxes paid by artificially shifting profits to low-tax jurisdictions”?

Like me, does she hope that the Government will accept the amendment?
