tim, 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. Mark

financial transaction tax(http://robinhoodtax.org.uk).
This tiny tax on financial transactions could
raise billions of pounds for good causes.

I request that you attend this event.
