Clare Moody, South West Labour MEP, reported that the EU adopts Labour proposals for tax transparency, including country-by-country reporting and list of tax havens.

The European Commission announced new proposals to tackle tax dodging by multinational corporations, including public country-by-country reporting and a common list of tax havens - following my Labour MEP colleagues report that was voted through in the European Parliament in December last year.
 
By making companies publicly declare where they make their profits and where they pay their tax, we can force them into playing by the rules throughout Europe. And the new list of tax havens, which will be based on objective criteria, will ensure greater transparency - all activity in places like Panama will need to be disclosed.
 
This announcement is another excellent example of the EU showing its value and an amazing step forward in the fight against tax avoidance and evasion.
 
It is welcome news that the Commission has reversed its proposals to only include EU countries. One of the main measures we called for was the establishment of an objective list agreed to by all within the EU, and accompanied by harsh EU sanctions.

About 300 supporters turned up at Treliske to join the Junior Doctor s striking over a new contract that the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, wants to impose on them. They believe that the new contract is both unsafe and unfair. Supporters include people from Trade Unions, Labour, Anti Cuts Alliance, families and friends of the hospital.

The public showed their support noisily by honking as they drove by the picket line and also and the demonstrators marched to Lemon Quay.

After discussing with people throughout the region their concerns about policing he commented, “There is a clear need to restore effective local-based policing, focused on crime risks that are changing rapidly and that vary from place to place. I am determined to modernise the police workforce and introduce new technology to ensure an ongoing visible presence, and provide the skills to address the complex challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s crime. Domestic abuse, sexual and other violent crimes, child sexual exploitation and rapidly increasing and worrying internet based crime are doing so much harm to our society. The most vulnerable and disadvantaged in society must get their fair share of policing."

The National Health Service is Labour's proudest creation - but Conservative cuts and mismanagement are pushing up waiting lists, making it harder to see a GP, and plunging hospitals into financial crisis. 

Labour will stand up for the NHS and we'll ensure it has the investment it needs. That's why we need to elect Labour representatives across the country who will work hard to defend and support our public services.

So what is all the fuss about, why are the Junior Doctors on strike? Well it is about being able to be safe. When I was a JD, I used to work ridiculous hours. In one job in my 1st year, every 3rd weekend I would go to work at 9am on a Saturday and leave at 5pm on a Tuesday. That was 80 hours in a row with sleep grabbed when the chances arose. It was dangerous and dehumanising and the even crazier thing was that I was actually paid at a lower rate for the unsocial hours than basic pay (1/3 of basic in fact).
