MEP visits Guernsey to talk finance and tax transparency

A UK MEP has been in Guernsey, discussing the island's financial sector as well as regulation, tax transparency and financial crime.

Ashley Fox, a Conservative Member of the European Parliament is a "longstanding supporter" of the Channel Islands.

He met with senior politicians, representatives from the finance sector, the Guernsey Financial Services Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.

Conversations also included the impact of the Brexit on the island, and Deputy Jonathan Le Tocq says the visit was good to provide an insight "into the mood music of the European Parliament ahead of the negotiations".
