Ed’s response to today’s revelations about HSBC

Commenting on today’s revelations about HSBC, Ed said:

“There are very serious questions for George Osborne and David Cameron to answer today.

“Why, in the five years since this government was first given information about how HSBC helped people evade tax, has there only been one prosecution out of 1100 individuals identified?

“And why did they appoint the Chairman of HSBC as a Tory Minister eight months after the government was told about the bank’s activities?

“Nobody will fall for yet more desperate distraction tactics from George Osborne and the Tories when it is clear that this information was first given to the government in 2010.

“That is why the Chancellor should come to the House of Commons and answer questions about this today.”
