Correspondence with MP Mark Oaten RE: Robin Hood Tax

Thanks for this
In principle we support the robin hood tax 
- it is an interesting proposal. 
I think there are some technical issues that 
would need to be overcome and 
also a more international approach would 
make it more effective.
In the interim we are proposing a 10% tax 
on bank profits to help rebalance the books 
- where the tax payer acts as a safety net for banks.
Unfortunately this invite has come a bit late 
and I already have meetings 
- but I will find out what is said at the meeting.

Dear Mr Oaten,
You are my MP.  I support the "Robin Hood" 
financial transaction tax( 
This tiny tax on financial transactions could 
raise billions of pounds for good causes. 
Advocates of the Robin Hood Tax will hold 
a Parliamentary launch between 12.30-2.30pm on 
Wednesday 24th February in Committee Room 17 
of the House of Commons. 
I request that you attend this event. 
A formal invitation with more details and 
contact information is attached.
Yours sincerely,
Tim Hodge
