Labour MP Dennis Skinner said in the House of Commons yesterday that it was "gruesome" for the Prime Minister to be "heading out of austerity-riddled Britain to wine and dine at Davos with 50 top bankers who helped to create the economic crash, several hundred tax avoiding millionaires".
Responding in the Commons, David Cameron said:
David Cameron will call for greater international cooperation on tax evasion in a speech to the World Economic Forum at Davos.
The Prime Minister will urge leaders to work together and tackle tax evasion by multi-national companies and the super-rich.
Mr Cameron will make the issue a key focus during Britain's presidency of the G8 leading economic powers.
A Downing Street spokesman said he would not be talking about Europe in the wake of his landmark promise of a referendum.
