Elphicke, a former tax lawyer, has said (according to AccountingWeb) that he has tabled a series of amendments to the Finance Bill that would make it illegal to help clients to invest in schemes designed to avoid tax.
Elphicke said he wanted to start a discussion about the morality of tax avoidance.
As at the time of writing evasion is illegal, but avoidance isn't. A former tax lawyer calling for the prosecution of those who promote avoidance schemes seems a tad hypocritical to me.
