Panel Debate: Should we Bank on the Robin Hood Tax?

St Paul's Institute, CAFOD, Tearfund and The Salvation Army have come together to host a panel debate in St Paul's cathedral on Tuesday 29th March 2011 at 7.00pm. The debate will focus on the extent to which the financial sector has a moral role to play in contributing to the common good.

Public discussion on this topic has been stirred by the Robin Hood Tax campaign, which proposes an additional tax on the financial sector to raise billons of pounds that could be used to fight poverty and climate change both here and abroad.

Evan Davis, well known economist and BBC presenter, will chair the debate which consists of panelists from different perspectives including:

Michael Green, Author and independent economist

Michael Izza, CEO of the Institute of Chartered Accountants

Rt. Revd Peter Selby, Former Bishop of Worcester

Baroness Shirley Williams, House of Lords

N.B. Due to unforseen circumstances, Ken Costa is no longer able to attend this debate.

This is a free, non-ticketed event and entry is through the front steps of St Paul's Cathedral.

Doors open at 6.15pm for a 7.00pm start.

Any enquiries please contact or phone 020 7489 1011.
