star this property answer text <p>DFID and HM Treasury ministers and officials meet regularly to discuss issues of common interest, including tax and development. We have worked closely to progress the G20 agenda on tax and development to ensure that developing countries can participate in the G20/OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) process and are able to implement its outputs. At the Autumn Statement the Chancellor announced increased resources for the HMRC capacity building unit that I established in 2013, to recruit a dedicated team of experts to tackle tax avoidance and evasion in developing countries.</p> more like this

The UK raises concerns about demolitions and displacement with the Government of Israel on a regular basis and at the highest levels. On 8 June, envoys from all 28 European Union Member States including the British Consul General to Jerusalem visited the Bedouin community at Susiya. The delegation’s visit was to emphasise their continuing support for the community and their opposition to demolitions in general.</p> more like this
