Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what measures they propose to ensure that all owners of United Kingdom media organisations pay full United Kingdom personal, corporate and sales taxes. [HL4885]

The Government are committed to supporting all companies and individuals within the scope of UK tax who seek to pay their fair share, and to deterring and challenging those who do not through a comprehensive range of measures. This applies to the media business in the same way as to any other industry.
