CITY VIEWS: SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT BE DOING MORE TO ENCOURAGE COMPANIES TO HEADQUARTER IN THE UK?

ALAN MEEK

“Yes, of course, if it would bring business to this country. I’m not an expert, but surely additional tax revenues can only be a good thing?”

PETER LAWREY

“It definitely should – certainly for larger global companies – and not just by reducing tax, which seems to be its main approach.”

VALERIE ELLWOOD

“Yes. A lot of business is done here, but a lot of revenue escapes us. The government is far too soft, although it is improving with Cameron.”
