Margaret Hodge to give CTA Address
Dame Margaret Hodge MP is to give this year’s Chartered Tax Advisers’ Address on the subject ‘What does a responsible tax system look like?’
She will give a 30 minute keynote speech and then join a panel to respond to questions from the audience. The new CIOT President Susan Ball (who takes office the previous week) will chair the debate.
Margaret Hodge has been the Labour Member of Parliament for Barking since 1994. She held several government positions in the last Labour government, holding portfolios across education, work and pensions, business and culture. From 2010 to 2015, she was Chair of the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee, a period when the committee took a heightened interest in scrutinising HMRC and the tax affairs of multinational companies. She has chaired the All Party Parliamentary Group on Responsible Tax since 2015 (since 2020 the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Anti-Corruption & Responsible Tax).
The CTA Address will take place at One Birdcage Walk on Tuesday 7 June 2022 from 18.30 to 20.00.
